Board of Deacons

Deacons are men and women who have been called to provide ministries of compassion, of witness, and of service to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless and to anyone who may be in distress both within and beyond our community of faith.

Jesus teaches us to care for others, especially those in need, as though he or she were our Lord Himself. To guide us, the scriptures remind us in Matthew 25:36-40: “…whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” This is at the heart of our Deacon ministry.
In addition to tangible care, our Deacons provide prayer for the congregation and community, make hospital visits, assist in worship preparations, serving communion and providing times of connection with others at Magnolia Pres. through pancake breakfasts, soup suppers and other connecting ministries.
