For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. (Mark 10:45)

….You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them. It is not so among you, but whoever wished to become great among you shall be you servant, and whoever wished to be first among you shall be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:25-28)

Sensing the servanthood of our Lord Jesus Christ – and believing that deacons are set apart to minister to the members of a congregation, serving as undersheperds ever alert to care for the well-being of the flock – we commit ourselves to serve in and through the Church He loved and gave Himself for. Realizing further that the role of servant is an honorable role, we will be examples of a servant after which others may model their lives.  Therefore, our deacon role will be exemplified through the following Deacon Ministries:

 

Duties and Responsibilities:

1)    Attendance: Faithful attendance of all church activities and services for the week.

2)    Prayer: Faithfully praying throughout the week for the Church, its ministries, the pastor, board and individual members.

3)    Guide: Being available during the morning services for support and guidance of individuals making decisions.

4)    Hospital Visits:  Deacons may be  notified of hospitalizations within the church family or close relatives of members by the church office via e-mails.
       Deacons may work with the Pastor to make hospital visits and/or contact with church members and their families who are in the hospital or having 
       any medical conditions and needs during the week.

6)   Crisis:  Deacons when notified of deaths within the church family or close relatives of members by the church office should offer comfort, support 
      prayers and encouragement to those who are grieving.

 

Deacon weekly assignments

Two deacons will be assigned each week of the calendar year.  The two deacons assigned for each week may work both togehter and independently of one 
another but will be cooperatively be responsible for all duties requiring preparation and maintanence of the church  for its scheduled services.
