During a Congregational Meeting on Sunday, March 18, the members of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church elected a slate of officers for the Class of 2021 who will serve as Elders, Deacons and Trustees of the church.
Members also elected three Members-at-Large who will serve on the 2019 Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee identifies new officers and prepares a slate of candidates for the congregation to consider once a year.
Senior Pastor Scott Black Johnston noted that 55 percent of the incoming officers are serving for the first time, a healthy measure of emerging leadership at the church.
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian will ordain and install our new officers during the 11 am worship service on Sunday, May 20. Thanks to all for your willingness to serve!
