John Knox Deacons
The office of deacon as set forth in scripture is one of sympathy, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ. Deacons are commissioned to, first of all, minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith.
There are nine deacons, each assigned to serve a designated group of John Knox members and friends of the church. The deacons are most visible as hosts of the social/coffee hour after Sunday services, and for organizing and hosting memorial services and wedding receptions. Behind the scenes, the deacons are watching over their ‘flocks’ checking in with them via phone calls, cards, and visits.
Joan Allen is the Deacon Moderator for 2018
