Appreciation to Pastor Bill Chan for allowing God to use you today to breathe life through His word.

2018-2019 Preliminary Deacon Nominees The Deacons Nomination Committee (Rev. Xavier, Geraldine Lai, Leon Tam, Ida Lam & Alan Chiu) currently has NO Preliminary Nominees. To give the congregations extra time to invite the candidates, terms and dates have changed:

  • There are five deacon vacancies for the term.
  • Church members may submit nominations in writing to the Nomination Committee by 9/10, but do not contact the nominee. Each nomination should be signed by 2 members in accordance with the Guidelines for Deacon Nomination (found on the admin bulletin board). All nominations must be accepted by both the Committee and the nominees before they are listed.
  • The final list will be announced and ballots distributed on 9/17. Ballot counting takes place on 10/1 and results announced on 10/8.
