Deacon Ordination Service at 6:00 PM in the Sanctuary Setting apart a person for ministry service is an action that dates back to the earliest days of the Church. Acts 13 says that after fasting and praying, the congregation "laid their hands upon them" as a blessing for coming ministry. This Sunday evening we set apart Kelly Barsch, Kathy Bernal, Phyllis Brockermeyer, Jason Harper, Kaylee Harper, Ryan Lane, and Carolyn Williams for service to this congregation as deacons. Please join us in the Sanctuary at 6:00 PM to share in this sacred hour of worship and act of blessing.
