Here to Help

Our deacons’ primary role is the care and support of the congregation. Their five teams each serve a unique need among our members. While deacons lead these teams, they are open to everyone who wants to serve our church family. If you have a heart for the care and support of Eastminster and would like to serve in one of these areas, contact Ginger Cox at 634.0337, ext. 200, or gcox@eastminster.org.
