The work of the Board of Deacons is to facilitate the caring ministries of the church. The congregation is divided into area ministries and each deacon is responsible for overseeing an area and for welcoming new members assigned to them. Deacons communicate with members about important news of the church and coordinate a number of important events and programs for the congregation.
