deacon ministries

The Holy Spirit is at work among the Deacon Board!  We have been dreaming about how God has called us to care for one another and for our neighbors. We have been dreaming about ways to equip you to be a vital part of a caring church. And we have been imagining how deeper, caring connections with all people in our congregation and beyond can transform a community and enrich the quality of our life together. The Deacon Board coordinates and manages our ministries, but the teams are made up of people from our congregation, people like you!   Get ready and pray for God’s guidance and wisdom to lead you towards a team that fires your passion and resonates with your gifts.

  • Grief Ministry

    Experiencing grief is a universal experience. During the first year of loss of a loved one, four Journeying through Grief booklets are sent at specific times, to the bereaved. Accompanying letters signed by one of our pastors offers support and grief resources. 

    In addition SMCC holds an annual Service of Remembrance on November 21, 2021, 4:00 - 4:45 P.M. and an occasional grief workshop.  Watch is live on November 21.
