Deacon’s Easter Coffee Hour

The Board of Deacons consists of nine members of the congregation elected by the congregation to a three year term.  The office of deacon is one of compassion, witness and service as demonstrated through ministering to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless and to those in distress not only in the congregation but in the community and in the world.

Deacons engage in activities such as preparing and delivering meals to sick and recovering members, visiting hospitals and nursing facilities, raising funds for local and world missions and encouraging fellowship through various church events.  The ministry of the deacons as demonstrated by their compassionate work brings the light of Jesus Christ to many.
