“LIKE GOOD STEWARDS OF THE MANIFOLD GRACE OF GOD,
SERVE ONE ANOTHER WITH WHATEVER GIFT
EACH OF YOU HAS RECEIVED (1 Peter 4:10)
The Nominating Committee has begun the vital work of discerning active NPC members to serve as elders and deacons for the Class of 2017. Elders and deacons strengthen and nurture the life of our congregation and oversee programs that serve the needs of our NPC family. The Class of 2017 will begin serving in March 2014.
In this new chapter of our journey as a community of faith, please prayerfully consider people, including yourself, who feel called to leadership and service at North, following the example of Jesus Christ. Reverend Hennessy and the NPC staff will train the newly elected elders and deacons prior to their installation or ordination.
Please write names where indicated on the lines below and place this form in the offering plate or drop it off in the church office. You may also give names to any member of the Nominating Committee via phone or email. In addition, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any member if you have questions about how deacons and elders serve or about the nominating process.

The Board of Deacons meets at 7:00pm on the second Tuesday of each month. The term of office is three years.
It is the duty of elders, individually and jointly, to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of the congregation committed to their charge. Gifts of elders include faith, dedication and good judgment. Installed elders serve on the Session and Session committees.
