Deacons are the Leading Servants in the Church. Every member is called to serve, but Deacons lead the way in organizing teams, caring for widows, making sure no one is overlooked, and displaying a life of humble care for those in need.
With Acts 6:1-7, 1 Timothy 3:8-12, and 1 Timothy 5:1-16 as a foundation, Deacons:
-care for widows,
-meet physical needs that arise in the Church,
-seek to preserve unity when points of division arise,
-serve as examples of Christian character and witness,
-assist the Senior Pastor and Ministry Staff in administration of the Ordinances, and
-lead service teams throughout the Church.
Deacon Teams at Emmaus include Hospital Visitation, Lord's Supper/Baptism, Prayer Room, Hospitality/Greeting, Nursing Homes/Homebound, Support/Coaching, and Helps/Service.
