Deacons

Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God — Romans 15:17

Purpose

The office of Deacon is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. It is our desire to serve the Lord and His church by helping to meet the needs of the people in our congregation and community. The Board of Deacons is responsible for collecting the gifts of the congregation and for distributing them to those in need. It is our desire to encourage others in the church to use their talents and gifts to serve the Lord together with us.

“The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress, after the example of Jesus Christ.” The Book of Order (G-2.0201)
