Deacon’s Corner

Therefore brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business…” (Acts 6:3)

“Likewise deacons must be reverent,
not double-tongued, not given to much wine,
not greedy for money,
holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience.
But let these also first be tested;
then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless.” (1 Tim 3:8-10)
