The Board of Deacons are the caregivers of the congregation, often called “the heart of the church.”

“The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ. . . . It is the duty of deacons, first of all, to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith” (Presbyterian Church (USA) Book of Order).

Deacons are responsible for the care of the congregation and outreach ministries. Each Sunday they staff the volunteer table during Coffee Hour and provide intercessory prayer in Stone Chapel after 10:00 worship, and throughout the week they are engaged in ministries of calling and offering care to members. The board also regularly provides volunteers to assist in a variety of ways at the Sunday Night Supper.
