The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress.
In order to show compassion, witness, and service, our deacons care for our ill and homebound members through seasonal gift bags, flower delivery, and visitation.  They prepare our communion elements for worship, and provide coffee hour weekly after worship.  Our deacons also offer funeral receptions and meals for those in crisis.
Our deacons are elected by the congregation and serve 3-year terms. The following are currently serving on our 2017 Board of Deacons:

Robin Bonus
Karl Brown
Peg Goutmann
Sue Hanson
Pat Hunt
Johm McGowan
Betsy McLaughlin
Al Pinter
Marilyn Pyle
Deb Simmons
Sue Taylor
Sandy White
Ian Brown, Youth Rep
