Deacons Ministry

 

Macedonia Deacons are the servant models in the church.  The Deacon body serves under the leadership of the Pastor and assist him in ministering to the church in order to free him for prayer and Bible study. The Deacons support and work with the Pastor in the following ways:

 

 

  1. Provide and distribute elements for communion.
  2. Prepare the baptismal pool and candidates for baptism.
  3. Act as custodians of benevolent offerings and provide for the welfare of the under-privileged and needy.
  4. Distribute benevolence to nonprofit charitable institutions.
  5. Assist the Pastor as needed.
  6. Provide leadership in expounding scripture.
  7. Direct and conduct devotional services on Sundays.
  8. Direct and conduct prayer service on Wednesdays.
  9. Visit the sick and shut-in.
