DEACONS

Deacons are elected to a ministry of care and compassion both within and outside the congregation. They pray for members and friends, provide meals in times of need or crisis, and deliver flowers to shut -ins and to those recovering from illness or surgery. They provide rides to church and to weekday appointments for those unable to drive. The Deacons also host the reception following a memorial service.
