Deacons

The early church created the office of Deacon to make sure that the needy were not neglected amongst the church body (Acts 6).

As deacons, our hearts go out to those in need and distress: those who have suffered loss (loss of life, health, income, and connection). We minister to the everyday needs of people within the church body and seek to include volunteers from within the body in this ministry. We do this in a number of practical ways, including: meals, visitations, and budget counseling. If you would like to help us in providing practical helps, please contact us and let us know if you can help with meals, driving, or other practical skills. 


Deacons serving in 2022: Deb Grigg, Jamie Clegg, Phyllis Ross, Dan Spagnesi, Sharon Creighton, Meg Evans, Brenda Utzinger, Bruce Holihan, and Ryan Gritter.


If you are a member or attender in need, please contact the church office.

 "My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you." John 15:12

November 1-20: Thanksgiving Offering 


Each year the Deacons provide thousands of dollars in grocery cards to various families in our church to help offset the costs of the holidays. During Covid, the need for grocery cards has increased, and we have been able to give generously. However, Thanksgiving and Christmas pose greater needs and we would like to provide for any who are on a tight budget. 

Fill the Freezer From Home

Fill the Freezer From Home:  Drop off October 22 by 9am in Room 3

Jesus asks that we feed the hungry and show His love by caring for those in need. One of the ways we do this is stocking a freezer each October with meals that can be used for those in need. By November, our Deacons freezer supply needs restocking from having shared close to 100 meals throughout the year.


This year due to COVID concerns we will not be having our usual “Cooking Party’ day so we must change it up.  We are asking that this year you signup for how ever many meals you would like to cook at your home and be prepared to bring them in disposable containers to church
