“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

Service completes our worship, promotes our own spiritual formation, exhibits our gratitude, and enhances our witness to the world.

It is that time again!  The City of Refuge Nominating Team for church officers. From now through September 30, the Nominating Team will be accepting nominations from the congregation for the offices of Elder, Deacon and next year's nominating team congregational representative. We want to urge you to check the City of Refuge website for further information on the available offices, what it means to serve,the nomination process, and our timeline for action. City of Refuge is hoping for at least four (4) new Deacons/Deaconesses and are praying for at least one (1) new Elder and one (1) nominating team member (to assist with the nominating process) to be elected this year.  

In obedience to scripture, City of Refuge Elders exhort all congregational members to prayerfully and diligently pursue potential candidates for these offices. Also, if you are approached for nomination, we urge you to pray fervently on this opportunity to serve as an officer in God’s house on behalf of His people.  Please view this call as a possible nudge from the Lord and allow your name to be submitted for consideration.

Finally, we recognize that, where people come from many different church backgrounds, there is often confusion about church leadership roles. One of the goals of the Nominating Team is to educate you and address your questions throughout this process. Contact, and someone on the Nominating Committee will respond directly to you

All the information for the nomination process can be found HERE.
