What We Do
Deacons are servant leaders, meeting spiritual and practical needs of the congregation. If you have such a need, please reach out to our team! The word deacon simply means “servant”. Deacons are servant leaders in the church. Their primary responsibilities include meeting the needs of the congregation, conducting church discipline, administering the Lord’s supper, and visiting the hurting in times of need. Their qualifications are described in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. Acts chapter 6 also tells the story of how the first deacons were chosen. If you feel called to this role, let the chairman of deacons know.
