Our Board of Deacons are engaged in a ministry of outreach: The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. It is a ministry of caring, love, compassion, prayer, and community service
Deacons are the members of our congregation to whom the Session has delegated the task of reaching out to the sick, the needy, the hungry, and the lonely. Our Deacons carry out their ministry in many wonderful ways, including: sending care packages to our college students and those serving in the military, visiting those who are ill or homebound, organizing meals for those who have a need because of illness, providing rides to and from Sunday worship, and reaching out to those who need prayer and help.
Deacons are elected by the congregation; each Deacon serves a three-year term. We have 18 Deacons serving in three classes. The Board of Deacons meets monthly.
