DIACONATE MINISTRY

Our Mission: To make certain that every member and family in our church  experiences the love and support of the whole congregation. We want to be known throughout our community as a loving and caring church.                 
 
Our Vision: We join the pastor and church staff in ministering to the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of each church member and family. The resident church families are divided into groups of ten or more families. Each group of families are assigned to a deacon or deaconess who will minister to them over a period of time.

We set aside time in our meetings to pray about the specific needs of families and rejoice over needs met and victories won. Another part of the meeting we use to  develop deacon and deaconess skills in ministering to family needs.
