Deacons are new to us at The Kirk, but not new to the church. According to scripture, Deacons are people who help us serve others with compassion, witness, and service, sharing the love of God with the poor, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress.

At The Kirk, two of our deacons help the pastor with pastoral care, coordinating efforts during times of illness or individual need. Our other two deacons coordinate small group programs and social activities.
