Our Deacons

The deacons serve in two major ways. 1.) Each member family is assigned to a deacon so the deacon can stay in touch with the family and offer support and encouragement when needed. 2.) Each month, one deacon is “on-call” to assist the pastor with any immediate needs that may arise, such as benevolent requests, etc. To view the On-call calendar, click here.

Our deacons are Tim Fletcher, Darrel Perkins, Bert Pruett, Steven Pruett, James Sitz, and Roger Weber.
