The Deacons are an important part of the church. According to our church Book of Order the office of Deacon is set forth in Scripture as a ministry of sympathy, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ. The Deacons are involved in a ministry of concerned compassion where they share the grace of God where it is needed. Through the church the Deacons collect food for the hungry and support Mission by the way of contributions to vital causes. They sponsor fellowship events in the church and provided the means to celebrate the Lord’s Supper in worship. The Deacons stand ready to serve those in need: the sick, the lonely and the distressed within the church or the community at large.
