Call from the FPC Nominating Committee

 The Nominating Committee is charged with proposing candidates for the offices of Elder (Session) and Deacon to be voted on at a Congregational meeting on August 27, 2023, after worship. 

If you believe someone might be called to serve, please suggest their names to a member of the committee - and it is perfectly appropriate to suggest yourself! In submitting a name, we do kindly ask that you include a summary of why you feel this person has the gifts to be an elder or deacon.

 We encourage you to contact us with any name suggestions or questions by May 4, 2023.


 To suggest a name (along with summary explanation) you may email Pastor Neeley Lane (neeley@fpccov.org) or Chair of the Nominating Committee, Louly Hay- Kapp (loulyh@ymcaatlanta.org).


 We hope to present a full slate of candidates on August 27, 2023. Officer training will take place in Fall of 2023. This class of officers will begin serving January 2024.
