Prayer, Care, and Help (Deacon’s Ministry)

What is a Deacon?

Mission Statement
Our mission is to display empathy, be a witness, and serve our church members, by the example of Jesus Christ; ministering to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and any who may be in distress. We strive to be the hands, feet, eyes, mouth, and ears, of Jesus, as His faithful servants. Simply put, deacons serve our church members, by the example of Jesus Christ; ministering to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and any who may be in distress.
