Board of Deacons

Our Deacons are Ministers of hospitality and compassion.

The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or anyone in distress. (G-2.0201)

We see to praying for the church making sure the sick, shut-ins, the lonely, and the poor of the community are brought to the attention of the church.  We serve as ushers at worship services, and other oversee the Mobile Food pantry, and have other duties as assigned by the Session. 

With the Ruling Elders and the pastor, we are part of the leadership and officers of the church.

In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”

Acts 6: 1-4
