The West Ohio Conference Order of Deacons will gather at Lakeside.
On Sunday, June 3rd, 2018 from 6 pm to 7 pm, the West Ohio Conference Order of Deacons will convene for food, fellowship, and a time to share about what's happening with Deacons around West Ohio and the Connection. We will have some time to share about our current ministry context and get to know other Deacons in the annual conference. This event is open to Provisional, Full Member, and Retired Deacons as well as those in the candidacy process who are sensing a call to the Order of Deacon.
The gathering will take place in Drackett Hall. There will be heavy hors d'oeuvres served and we will conclude in plenty of time to make the opening Worship Service at 7:30 pm. An RSVP is required for planning purposes and you can do that here: see below

The Order of Deacons, Rev. Benji Sayre
The order of deacon refers to both the office in the church to which one is ordained and the covenantal group of one’s peers to which one belongs. One also belongs to the Order of Deacons as described in paragraph 306 of the Book of Discipline. The Order of Deacons is a covenantal community designed to mutually support, care for, and hold accountable its members for the sake of the life and mission of the church.
The Division of Deacons, Rev. Rachel Miller
The Division of Deacons is a sub-committee of the Board of Ordained Ministry. The primary task is to care for the Credentialing, Certification, Reporting and Ceremonial Recognition needs for the Order of Deacons.
