Deacons Ministry

(Acts 6:1-7; Tim. 3:8-13)
Deacons are ministers, not administrators. Their role is to "come beside" their pastor, to assist him in ministering to the congregation and community. The ministry of Deacon is one of witness, sympathy and service. The duty of a Deacon is to care and nurture, to be a friend and comforter, to share the joy and wonderment of God's grace, love and blessings with all that they serve. 
Our deacons are available to assist members.  Regardless of your need, whether it is spiritual, sickness, financial, etc., please scontact your deacon.
If you were unsuccessful in contacting your deacon, our Deacon Ministry Chairman, Bruce Merrick, would appreciate the opportunity to assist you.  Please feel free to contact him at
