Board of Deacons

The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. The deacons minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith.
Board of Deacons activities include:
  • Sending postcards to individuals on our prayer list
  • Delivering Valentine's gifts to elderly members
  • Planning fellowship opportunities
  • Facilitating post-worship fellowship
  • Sending care packages to college students
  • Assisting the pastor with home Communion
  • Providing transportation or other assistance to church members who are homebound or without transportation
