At the Swartz Creek Church of Christ, our deacons share the responsibility of the day-to-day workings and ongoing projects of our congregation. Each of our deacons heads up a program or area of our congregation and our ministries, and the deacons work closely together with our elders and our ministers to make sure things are running smoothly, all needs are met, and all necessary work is done.
We have 10 hard working men leading in their ministries.
Deacons (1 Timothy 3:8-13)
1 Timothy 3:8-13 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
8:1 Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, 9 but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach. 11 Women must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things. 12 Deacons must be husbands of only one wife, and good managers of their children and their own households. 13 For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
