Think! Deacons

Acts 6:2-4, 1 Timothy 3:8-13

Deacons are servants who help elders. When a special task needs to be done, elders appoint deacons to carry out the task. In this way, the task gets done, but the elders can continue to focus on watching out for the congregation and looking for other needs. Not just anyone can be a deacon. The Bible tells us the qualifications for deacons.
