Deacon Family Ministry

The Deacon Family Ministry Plan

     Our church cares for you and your family; therefore, our pastor and the deacons are committed to the Deacon Family Ministry Plan. In this plan, the deacons join the pastor and the church staff in ministering to the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of each church member and family. The resident church families are each assigned to a deacon who will minister to them over a period of time.

Our deacons have been nominated and elected the congregation, and are called by God to this task of caring and loving our church families. The more time we spend with our families through visits and fellowship, the more we get to know them and their needs, and the more specific our prayers become. No one is perfect so please pray for us as we pray and serve the needs of our families.      

We spend a portion of our meetings each month: praying for our families’ needs and also rejoicing over needs met and victories won; and, formally and informally developing our skills in ministering to family needs. The deacons want to help their families experience the love and support of our whole congregation.  

Once a family joins the congregation, they are assigned to a personal deacon. It is our sincerest hope that our deacons establish a personal relation with our families and serve the unique needs of our congregation.

For more information on our Deacon Family Ministry, please contact Jim Smith, our current Deacon Chairperson.

If you are a current congregation member seeking to find out your assigned deacon, please visit the member only section of the website.

 


Deacon Emeritus'

  The designation of Deacon Emeritus is primarily used to recognize any ordained deacon who has provided faithful service and who because of advanced age, health restrictions, or other special circumstances becomes unable to continue in active Deacon Council. Deacon Emeritus' entitles those individuals to participate in Deacons meetings, share their wisdom, set an example and serve when and where they can. They are held in the highest regard for the numerous years they have served, the coutless hours they have dedicated to the families of our church and the unwavering dedication to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
