The New Testament teaches that in addition to elders, congregations of the Lord’s church appointed servants referred to as “deacons” (Philippians 1:1).  Like elders, these men are to be appointed based upon qualifications that are spelled out in Scripture (1 Timothy 3:8-13). Under the oversight of the elders, these men carry out various works of service to the congregation. We currently have eight men who serve as deacons. The men  appointed to this work have met the qualifications of Scripture and serve the congregation faithfully in this work.
