    Deacons’ Corner…

    The Board of Deacons relies on the generosity of our congregation to help fund our various activities and responsibilities throughout the church and surrounding community. Deacons regularly serve on all of our church’s committees, as well as on the Open Door Pantry Operations Committee, help church and community members with financial needs, visit shut-ins, provide meals and flowers for funerals and memorial services, and also help with church-wide events.
