The Mission of the Deacons, individually and collectively, is to serve - however, whenever and wherever possible to make evident God’s kingdom on earth - understanding that we, along with many others are called to be the hands, feet, face, voice and heart of Jesus in this church, community and world.
The Deacons cooperate with the Minister to deepen the spiritual life of the church and community, sharing with the Minister the responsibility for the nature and character of the services of worship. They assist in the preparation and the administration of Christian Baptism and Holy Communion. They aid the Minister by visiting and caring for the needs of the members and friends of the church and community. They provide for the supply of the pulpit in case of a vacancy, and in the absence of the Minister, and encourage members to fulfill their duties and obligations. The Deaconate shall have the responsibility to remain in communication with the Minister regarding the need of the Minister and the Minister's family.
