Elder Selection Update:  The elder candidates met Wednesday evening, in the sanctuary, to share their individual discernment regarding their availability to serve at PVMC as elders, and to create a slate for the congregation to join in the discernment process.  Two men are available to serve and willing to be called by God, through a congregational vote.  One elder is needed.  Pray for God’s direction as we seek to identify the elder He is calling from among the following two individuals (listed in alphabetical order); Hank Eichelberger and Michael Slagell.  The congregational vote will take place during the worship service, November 7.  Absentee ballots will be available October 31 and are due back by the time of the vote on the 7th.
