Deacons

Our Deacon Ministry

In the language of the New Testament Greek, the word deacon means servant. Our First Baptist Church deacon body is made up of men from our congregation that are gifted in serving the body of Christ.

What do deacons do at FBC?
*  Each deacon is assigned families to stay in touch with and to address their prayer needs.
*  Assist in hospital visitations and shut in's.
*  Assist in small projects that members are no longer able to do.
*  Be an encouragement to the congregation and send encouraging notes as needed.
*  Assist in the Lords Supper
*  Assist in the taking up of the offering
