Deacons

The office of deacon is one of care and compassion for those both in and outside our community of faith. We organize our Board of Deacons along three essential ministries:

  • Congregational Care: Caring those for those within our community of faith who are ill, injured, home-bound, or otherwise incapacitated. This committee is also charged with overseeing the preparation for Holy Communion and some of our church-wide fellowship events.
  • Community Ministry: Supporting local missions and helping the congregation to be engaged in transformational work in our community and larger world.
  •  Food Program: Providing food to those in need through a monthly food distribution on the third Saturday of each month (starting at 9:00 a.m.), and with emergency bags of food distributed through the office Monday through Friday (households are eligible to receive one bag of food per month through the office, not including the third Saturday distribution).Deacons Card with Names
