As a church family,
We care for one another as we journey through life’s joys and sorrows. Together with our pastoral staff, we have members of the congregation who have devoted their time to the care of their church family members as Deacons.
Our Pastor, Libby Grammer, provides visitation and counseling for our family of faith. She provides communion for homebound members and regularly visits and prays for our members. Additionally, she is available to the community as anyone may have a desire for care in the midst of crisis and is seeking a family of faith with which to join. Contact the church office to meet with our pastor.
Deacons are men and women called to serve as spiritual leaders of the church. The call to deacon service is an honor and a privilege. Once ordained, deacons typically serve actively in three-year terms, up to two terms consecutively. They…
- Serve the Lord with a generous spirit, willingly contributing time and talents in support of Christ’s kingdom.
- Provide leadership in worship.
- Support the care and fellowship of the church family.
- Extend Christ’s love to the community, both in and outside the church walls.
In worship, deacons share in serving the elements of the Lord’s Supper (communion), collecting the offering, and welcoming members and visitors alike as we gather to worship. Deacon teams also encourage us in fellowship by hosting occasional fellowship gatherings throughout the year.
Deacons help to nurture our church fellowship through a ministry of outreach and care to an assigned small group of church members, offering help and support when needed, and providing a connection to the church family. Each active member of the congregation is assigned to a deacon care group.
