These leaders not only serve the 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 Ramendra Krishna, Vincent Milani, and Dennis San Pedro.


These dedicated ladies help our weekly services run smoothly. They pray regularly for the ladies of the church, and also provide listening ears to the needs of our families. Currently, our deaconesses are Kathy Bostwick, Janet Cargay, Susan Fontes, Melissa Horst, and Nancy Vanerwegen.
