The Board of Deacons
As Deacons, our primary emphasis in serving the Lord and our church is the spiritual needs of the church.  Presently there are 18 members of the Diaconate and we are organized into three teams - Worship, Membership and Church Life.  Our Deacons partner with the Pastor on visitation and keeping in touch with our congregation.

Worship
The Worship team is responsible for working with the Pastor on anything relating to the worship services, plus enlisting people to serve as lay readers and children's story-tellers.  We celebrate Communion the first Sunday of each month and it is the responsibility of the Deacons to prepare and serve Communion.

Membership
The Membership team is responsible for reaching out to our congregation as liaisons to the Diaconate, including keeping the Pastor informed.  This team also keeps our Facebook page updated and works on different media to connect with our congregation and our church community.

Church Life
The Church Life team is responsible for the "care of the congregation", including organizing Greeters, Coffee hour hosts, special events and get-togethers.
