In the New Testament, deacons were simply servants who were appointed for to take care of special needs found in the church. Several passages describe their work and qualifications (Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:8-13; Acts 6).
Right now, Burns is in the process of appointing new deacons. Eight men have been put before the congregation for consideration. We hope to formally ordain them to service on the last Sunday of March, 2019.
