In our church, the Deacons are a body of men and women who have been selected and ordained:
- to assist the ministerial staff in providing spiritual leadership for the church
- to help minister to the needs of the congregation.
The Deacons meet each month for prayer and consideration of pertinent issues before the issues are brought to the congregation. They also provide support for new members and visits to the sick and home-bound members on an ongoing basis. Several times a year, they take communion to the home-bound members.
