Deacons

Following the New Testament’s instructions, deacons have been appointed to serve the body of Christ at Southgate. Deacons are split between four congregational care groups to facilitate serving the church body and are responsible over these care groups. 

In addition to meeting physical needs of the body, deacons also coordinate semi-annual congregational care lunches for each group. Be sure to check the calendar of events to learn more and register.
