Deacons

The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress.
— Book of Order, Part II of the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA)

The deacons are officers of the church with responsibility to care for those in need: members, friends, and others. You’ll find them bringing meals to those in grief or illness, visiting folks in the hospital, giving a ride to a doctor’s appointment or to the grocery store, and many other ways of helping. Deacons are elected to two-year terms by the congregation at the annual meeting.

Deacons serving August 2019 through July 2020 are:

Mary Schipper, Moderator
Murl Baker
Patrick Rucker
Juli Salman
Bonnie Trujillo
Sharon Vander Meer
Sean Croto, Deacon Assistant
