Deacon Smith

In January Jarrod was honored to be selected to serve as a deacon of our church, Dorcas Wills Memorial Baptist.  He was ordained on a Sunday evening and shared his testimony of faith with the congregation.  Each deacon and minister came by to pray over us, which was really nice and will be forever remembered.  Our church has been one of the biggest blessings since our arrival to the community a couple of years ago.  Our prayer as a family is to show God's love throughout our community in all ways.

1 Timothy 3: 8-13

Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. They must lhold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11 Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. 13 For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
