Providing faithful service to the church with monthly meetings.
Contact: Pastor Rod Davison
DEACONS' AND DEACONESSES' MINISTRY
One of the goals of our church is to reach out to those the Lord brings to us by ministering to their needs. The purpose of each Deacon and Deaconess is to be a spiritual leader within the congregation and provide counsel to the Pastor.
Deacons and Deaconesses assist with Communion and prepare elements for communion. They serve on the Hilltop Chapel Official Board and attend monthly Deacon meetings and provide a Deacons' Report at the quarterly Official Board meetings. They are available to conduct worship services and adult Sunday School in the absence of the Pastor. Deacons and Deaconesses insure spiritual accountability within the body of Christ and encourage the congregation to participate in church activities. Deacons and Deaconesses assist the Pastor as necessary, and are available for visitations and to minister to the needs of the congregation while honoring confidentiality and discretion.
Paul called himself a servant, or "deacon", in 1 Corinthians 3:5 and Ephesians 3:7. Even Jesus was said to be a servant, or "deacon", according to Romans 15:8 and John 12:26, and Paul told Timothy to be a good servant, or "deacon" in 1 Timothy 4:6.
Our Deacons and Deaconesses are available and eager to serve our congregation and welcome the opportunity to assist you. Our current Deacons/Deaconesses are: Kathy Williamson, Bonnie Lamar, Ivan Strayer, Isidro Bruno and Russell Crose.
Feel free to contact any of them for more information.
