Deacons at Emmanuel are committed to a servant ministry.
Tom Robinson was elected by the Deacon Council (those who are now serving a three year term) as Chair. Lynn Clark is the new Deacon Vice-Chair and Virginia Short will be the secretary for this year.
These officers along with the rest of the Deacon Body will extend the ministry with our fellowship throughout the year.
Deacon Teams offer ministry in specific areas. Terry Lowry will lead the Homebound team who will make regular contact with our homebound members and take the Lord’s Supper to those who wish to participate.
Lynn White and her Prospective Members team will make contact with persons and families who visit Emmanuel. They will assist in welcoming our guests and providing information about our fellowship.
Jay Bolen and the New Member team help our new members learn about Emmanuel and find a place of involvement. Butch Mackey and his Toolbox team coordinate home repair with church members who request assistance.
Tom Robinson will work with our Hospital group. Each member who goes into the hospital (and we know it) are visited by these deacons.
If you have need for any deacon to offer you spiritual support and encouragement, please contact the appropriate team leader or the church office. You will find that a contact is only a phone call away.
Join us this Sunday evening at 6:00 in Bolton Chapel as we ordain three new deacons, Adam Lord, Heather Mackey and Connie Hixson, and install seven others.
