These leaders serve both the physical needs of our church facility and the spiritual needs of our church family. They regularly meet to pray for members of the congregation and to discuss how to best serve their needs. Our current deacons are Mike Beyelia, Steve Bostwick, Ramendra Krishna, and Vincent Milani.


These dedicated ladies help services and events run smoothly. They pray regularly for the ladies of the church, providing listening ears to their particular needs.
