Prayer for New Church Officebearers

Our merciful Father in heaven, we thank you that you have provided faithful and gifted men to serve as elders and deacons. As these new officebearers assume their responsibilities, fill them with your Spirit, endow them with your wisdom, and grant them strength. Make them faithful workers in your vineyard. Under their guidance may your church grow in every spiritual grace, in faith which is open and unashamed, and in the committed service that promotes your reign in the world. Help them to perform their duties with enthusiasm and humility. In their work, grant them a sense of sustained awe which is rooted in daily adoration of you, their Lord. Through them may your name be honored and your church be served.

Help us, your people, to accept them gladly, encourage them always, and respect them for the sake of your precious Son, our Lord, in whose name we pray. Amen.

At the Joint Overnight Fellowship of Trinity Covenant Reformed Church and Pasig Covenant Reformed Church (Imus, Cavite) this weekend, we thank and praise God for the election of new officebearers for the two churches by congregational vote.

Next Lord’s Day, May 5th, we will hold our Installation Service for them in their respective churches. During the service, all officebearers will confirm their subscription to the Scriptures as summarized in our Creeds and Confessions by signing the officebearers’ Form of Subscription.

At the same Worship Service in Imus, there will be an official declaration of Trinity Covenant Reformed Church as an organized church. Because of the installation of new elders and deacons, the church will be considered an organized church, and the congregation will be charged to make the church official.
