Deacons

The word deacon is derived form the Greek word diakonos, which literally means servant. Therefore, the board of deacons is organized to meet the needs of the church of which it is a part. This includes spiritual and temporal needs of members and non-members alike. The deacons also serve as a liaison between that member and the church. Deacons ensure that the sanctuary and classrooms are cleaned. This also includes maintaining the church grounds.
