  4. Deacon Nominating Committee (DNC) 2020 has been set up: two current deacons – Eric Cheung and Clara Chew, two members – Paul Lam and Hilda Wong, and Senior Pastor George Siu.  According to the bylaws, each term of a deacon is two years.  After the first term, a deacon can be re-elected for a second term, after which, a one-year break is required.  Among the five existing deacons, three of the deacons (Eric Cheung, Clara Chew, and William WL Chan) will finish their two terms of four years.  Hence, we will need to elect three new deacons to the Board of Deacons in 2021.  Pray for the DNC, and pray to the Lord for committed leaders to respond to the calling as deacons to serve alongside with the pastors.  Deacon nomination has now started.  Instructions for nomination: Before July 5th, email to Pastor George ( with the name of the nominee and the names of the two nominators.  Once the email has been received, the DNC will confirm the nominators.
