In the Bible, words have specific meanings and the word “deacon” means servant.
We are blessed to have men serving as Deacons to care for the membership and assist our staff with meeting the needs of the congregation and community.
Our deacons meet with our staff leadership on a regular basis to pray together, share the needs of the church, and support our ministers as they carry out their work. Our deacons are available to our church body should you have a need, they are but a phone call away and the “on duty” schedule (with phone numbers) is posted weekly in the bulletin.
Our deacons will soon begin a leadership study with our Pastor that will affirm their calling, help them grow in The Lord, and will help them train up others to serve as additional deacons are required.
Serving as a deacon is a calling of God that is then affirmed by the church. Pray with us that The Lord to bring forward those with a heart to serve our congregation as it grows and as additional deacons are needed.
Our deacons will be meeting regularly through the summer to complete a spiritual and practical training program.
