Our very active Board of Deacons totally devotes its time and energy to pastoral care. Each of our 27 deacons has a portion of the congregation for which he or she is responsible. This responsibility is to keep a finger on the pulse of each family, assist them as needed (and as the deacon is able) and to report information to the pastoral staff in order for them to respond. While this Shepherding Program is the mainstay of the Board, it is also involved in chancel flower delivery, transportation for sick and shut-ins and food delivery for the sick, shut-in or recently bereaved.
