Elders


I am thankful that God designed the church to have elders with the qualification to teach.  Whenever our pastor is away for a weekend or two, one of our elders steps up and preaches the sermon.  They may not be quite as polished as our pastor in their delivery, but they definitely share the Word of God in an understandable way.  It’s reassuring to be able to see the teaching of our elders, and thus, to know about the mindset of those in charge of our Church.

I am thankful for the work that our elders do in running the church, mediating, guiding, teaching, and leading.  I pray that they would be encouraged in the work that God has given them, and for God’s endurance and wisdom to carry out His work.  May they ever reveal God’s glory to His children.
