The deacons are leaders who assist and promote spiritual activities and growth of our church. If you join us one Sunday, you will be greeted by one of our deacons once you enter through our doors. They are the welcomers, and often the first face many of our members see on Sunday mornings. Often deacons will assist in sacraments of baptism and communion. They may also assist the pastor at weddings or other events. Deacons also visit members who are unable to regularly attend church.  Our deacons are usually longtime members, and often volunteer their time in various facets of our church.



Meet your deacon the door, Janet! Each month, a deacon will serve as a welcomer to our church on Sunday mornings.  Here is a little bit about them...


“I've been a member of the First Congregational Church for many years having been baptized as an infant, attended Sunday School and joined the church in the early 70’s. I married my husband Phil here in 1991 and our two children Courtney and Lauren were confirmed here. My father Ralph Husmer was a deacon and it was an honor to become one as well as I feel like I am carrying on an important part of our family’s tradition in serving. I look forward to greeting you on Sunday mornings. Please join us for some of the many opportunities and events our church has to offer.”
