In the early church, the deacons were assigned the task of taking care of the welfare of widows. In today’s church, deacons are assigned with the practical day-to-day care of the congregation. The day-to-day care includes, but is not limited to: prayer concerns, home visitations and the care for families who are in need of some form of assistance. Our Deacons act as a line of communication between the congregation, the pastor, and the church staff. The Deacons maintain a list of community resource contacts that are used to give direction to people in need. The Deacons are involved in the daily life of the church, expressing our faith in the service that we provide. We are servants of Christ and His people.
