DEACONS

The work of a deacon is one that is found in the Scriptures and continues to this day. A description of a deacon can be found in I Timothy 3:9, “… Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience.”
