The deacons seek to serve the congregation by responding to parishioners' needs for prayer, meals, rides, and notes and calls of encouragement. They also usher funerals and serve the refreshments at receptions.
Please consider signing up to be a "deacon helper" if you are willing and able to assist the deacons in this ministry by occasionally providing a meal or a ride, baking for a funeral reception, ushering, and/or any other forms of assistance. We'll call you if and when we could use a hand for a particular situation or event. Thank you!

Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye can never say to the hand, "I don't need you." The head can't say to the feet, "I don't need you." In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. 1 Cor 12: 20-22
