The Deaconess Board provides congregational care to the people of this church. They assist in providing spiritual care and nurture to the church through the preparation of the Lord’s Supper (communion), baptisms, funerals, and other worship services.
They also provide ministry and services to individual church members and attenders as needed.
[Hospital Visits & Shut-Ins]
The Visitation Team visits folks who are in the hospital and anyone who may not be able to attend weekly services, whether they are ill or shut-in. The team provides encouragement and prayer.
Home Communion is also available, upon request.
We desire to assist grieving families through the difficult days following the death of a loved one. We have close working relationships with our local funeral homes. Normally, our church facilities will be used for funerals of family members associated with our church. Requests for funerals and/or funeral luncheons of individuals without a relationship to this church will need to be approved by the Elder board. The Deaconess Board provides the funeral lunches for families of members/regular church attenders.
