Mercy Ministry


Our Deacons Fund is a benevolent ministry funded by donations designated for and used by the deacons to extend mercy and help to those in our congregation and those connected to them who are unemployed or under-employed.

Some of the monies from the Deacon Fund are also used for unexpected emergencies people may have and the local agencies who support those in need of mercy.

For more information regarding the Deacons Fund please contact one of the Deacons.
