While the Deacons are certainly not the only ones who serve, they definitely lead the congregation in serving; in fact, the word “deacon” means “to serve.”
You’ll usually see all four deacons up front during our monthly remembrance of the Lord’s Supper as well as taking our Deacon’s Fund offering at the close of the service that same day.
We have six deacons serving in 2020: Michael Dunkerton, Roger Fenton, Alex Kushinikov, Russ McCausland, Larry Myers, and Matt Pepper. Matt Pepper is currently the lead deacon, and you can usually find him in the back working the sound booth.
Each of our deacons serve in a variety of areas and meet monthly to discuss how to best meet the needs of our facility. They also endeavor to help meet any practical needs of those in our congregation and our community, as they become aware of those needs. If you see or know of any facility issues that need to be addressed or physical needs that you think they could help meet, feel free to contact any of these faithful servants.
While all of the deacons serve the congregation in general, each church member has been assigned to a “Deacon Care Group,” enabling the deacons to have specific individuals and families on which to focus.
The following individuals currently serve in leadership roles over various areas of ministry. If you’d like to find out more about them or are ready to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
