Week of 5/21-5/29
The office of deacon is recognized as a high and holy office, but its honor is acquired from service rather than position. The office of Deacon exists for the aid of the Elders; service and ministry to the membership; watchful care and advice in the affairs of the Church. Deacons shall be characterized by the qualifications set forth in the following Bible passages:
1 Timothy 3:8-13; Acts 6:3-6 [See also Romans 16:1-2; Ephesians 6:21; Colossians 1:7, 4:7; Philippians 1:1]
