The Elders are charged by Scripture and our Book of Church Order to watch diligently over the flock and to guard the doctrine taught within the church. The Elders visit with people in their homes, especially the sick. They are called to instruct people regarding the gospel, comfort the mourner, nourish and guard the children of the Church. They should set a worthy example to the flock entrusted to their care by their zeal to evangelize the unconverted and make disciples. The Elders also pray with and for the church and its members, being careful and diligent in seeking the fruit of the preached Word among the flock. Each elder has a Shepherding Group; they can be found here.
“Shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly…” (1 Peter 5:2)

According to the Scriptures and our Book of Church Order, it is the duty of the deacons to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress. It is their duty also to develop the grace of liberality in the members of the church, to devise effective methods of collecting the gifts of the people, and to distribute these gifts among the objects to which they are contributed. They shall have the care of the property of the congregation, both real and personal, and shall keep in proper repair the church edifice and other buildings belonging to the congregation.
“For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.” -1 Timothy 3:13
Meeting: Second Monday of Each Month at 6:00 p.m.
