Synodical Deacons

Through a two year intensive study with Pastor, four of our members are now serving as Synodical Deacons. As Deacons they serve as extensions of Pastor Greg through the ministry of “Word and Service”. Our Deacons are an integral part of the mission at LCoP as we care for one another and as we reach beyond the walls of our church.
