The Deacons are officers of the church, like Session members, and they are focused on ministries and activities to those in need. The Deacons coordinate our church’s involvement with Manna House, a ministry that provides a hot lunch to those in need. The Deacons also organize and promote our help with Project Self-Sufficiency, particularly their “Stu-Bear” Christmas project. The Deacons also promote, organize, and administrate our food pantry. These are just a few of their activities.
Like Session members, Deacons are nominated by the nominating committee then elected on the second Sunday of December.
