Our denomination states that the office of deacon as set forth in scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. Deacons here at Second seek to fulfill the call of Christ to love one another as Christ loves us. They routinely make visits to hospitals and nursing homes, and meet with people who find themselves in need of individual pastoral care. When a family or individual needs support, it is the deacon ministry that pulls together the plan and follows through. Our support for each other also includes times of joy, like a wedding celebration, the birth of a child, or a baptism.
Deacons are elected by the church nominating committee. They serve three year terms and meet monthly for spiritual renewal, training, planning, and communication with one another. Being a deacon is a serious and meaningful calling, but also a joyful one. Deacons have the privilege of serving individuals and the congregation at large; they walk side by side with others through both the painful and joyous transitions of life.
