September 2019 is a New Stage for the Vancouver Church.
Give thanks to God, who raised up brothers and sisters to bless many. We ordained elders and deacons according to the Biblical teachings.
At the evening meeting on Sept. 6, Brother Sermon explained “The Elders and Deacons in the Bible” to help us understand the Biblical teaching, and to willingly practice the truth, love this family, and to treasure God’s commission on us, so many more will understand His will.
The Lord is our best role model. Before He was betrayed, He washed the disciples’ feet. He even offered His life. Similarly, after His resurrection, He prepared a meal for His disciples. (Ref: Matthew. 20:25-28). Serving with love is the highest honor. Elders and deacons are to serve brothers and sisters. They are spiritually mature, they love and take care of God’s family by His will.
That evening, two elders and eleven deacons were ordained. May God cause the Vancouver church to be a great blessing for the city.
