Board of Deacons
The Diaconate, or board of Deacons, is made up of 12 members who are tasked with helping the pastors with the spiritual needs of the church. In addition, they have two deacon Emeriti, or former deacons who have been granted the title for life due to their length of service and dedication to the deacons.
You will notice the deacons participating in worship services by doing readings of scriptures and assisting with serving communion. In addition, the deacons provide worship leadership during the pastors’ vacation or other absence. They do everything from preparing prayers to presenting the message.
