CGS is led by officers (Elders and Deacons) who are elected by members on an annual basis and serve a three-year term. Officer nominations by members are being received from January 8- January 29 and can be made here. Begin by praying and reviewing the qualifications of 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 and then, (1) Decide if you think the nominee qualifies for the office of either elder or deacon; (2) Ask the person’s permission to nominate him as elder or deacon; and (3) Click here to submit an online nomination form. (If you prefer, paper nomination forms are available at the Welcome Desk outside the Sanctuary). New candidates attend a series of preparation classes Sunday mornings, 9:00 - 10:30am, February 5 - April 2. Then they decide if they wish to continue the process. All prospective officers will be examined by the Session with both written exams and an interview prior to the election on Sunday, May 21.
