We believe the work of deacons represents to the world our God’s deep concern for the poor among his people, and particularly our Savior’s own compassion toward the poor in his earthly ministry. We hope through their vital work to adorn our witness to the world with deeds of mercy that accompany words of gospel truth!  Our denomination participates in short term mission and disaster relief, as well as many other vital works to serve those in need around us.  Click here for more information about the diaconal work of our denomination.
