In Christ alone is where we get our strength to endure physical and/or emotional pains or ailments. Our deacons have an outreach ministry of making hospital visits, nursing home visits, homebound visits, and contacting those grieving with the loss of loved ones.
James 5:14 ESV “is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the lord.”
Our deacons help the widows/widowers by their “need a hand” program. This program will assist when needing help with small jobs. In addition to our deacons ministry of a “handy man” for the widows/widowers, they remember and honor them by having an annual banquet.
James 1:27 NLT “pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.”

I Timothy 3:8-13 NAS “Deacons, likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clean conscience. And let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach. Women must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips but temperate, faithful in all things. Let deacons be the husbands of only one wife and good managers of their children and their own households. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.”
Acts 6:3-8 NAS “Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word. The statement found approval with the whole congregation; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch. And these they brought before the apostles; and after praying, they laid their hands on them. The word of God kept on spreading; and the number of the disciples continued to increase greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were becoming obedient to the faith. And Stephen, full of grace and power, was performing great wonders and signs among the people.”
