A deacon is a partner in Christian service with the pastor.  God in His divine wisdom established the office of pastor and deacon.  Pastors and deacons share a divine responsibility to proclaim the gospel to believers and non-believers, provide care for church members and other people in the community, build and maintain church fellowship, and provide Christian leadership in order to help their church attain its spiritual mission.

Deacons are co-laborers - partners with the pastor in God's work.  Our deacons are involved in the Deacon Widow Plan which is a commitment of continuing concern for every widow in the church.
