“Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience. But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless. Likewise, their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.” I Timothy 3:8-13
Service in the Kingdom
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
“For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through loveserve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”Galatians 5:13-14
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for
many.” Mark 10:45
OUR DEACONS & AREAS OF SERVICE
Our deacons serve in the capacity of helpers. The Greek word for deacon literally means “a servant”. Each of our deacons serves the congregation in the capacity assigned to him. These assignments are areas in which we at the North Brandon congregation are involved in our church, community, and world. Click on each program page to view news and updates. Requirements of our deacons can be viewed by clicking on the link that precedes their names. If you are interested in helping with any of these areas of service, please notify the assigned deacon.
Building & Grounds

Building & Grounds Page
A necessary part of our assemblies is to perform those functions necessary to maintain the exterior and interior of the building and grounds to make them a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment in which to worship and fellowship.
Our goal is to grow deeper in faith as well as in knowledge, and one of the best ways to accomplish that purpose is through focused study times. That is why our Sunday morning and Wednesday night Bible classes are so important. In our adult Bible classes, you’ll find a group of individuals diligently searching God’s Word for answers, sharing questions and com-ments, and building friendships. If we grow closer to God, then we will all grow closer to one another.
Our purpose at North Brandon is to be good stewards when it comes to individual as well as congregational finances. This area of responsibility ensures that every penny that is spent is properly allocated and accounted for, all for the furtherance of God’s kingdom locally and wherever we may have influence.
A key tool in fulfilling Jesus’ commandment to preach the gospel
to everyone (Matthew 28:19-20), our outreach evangelism work
encourages our local members to teach others. We also support
local, national and foreign missions and evangelistic efforts.
To provide encouragement and support to members, members’ families and friends in times of bereavement, turmoil, or illness through visits, phone calls and cards; build closer bonds within the congregation by monthly fellowship in small group settings; and provide members the opportunity to reach out and encourage recent visitors by personal contact.
We realize that teaching our youth to follow Christ at an early age is fundamental for a faithful life. The youth at North Brandon are involved in monthly activities designed to equip them for service in God’s kingdom as well as growing their friendships with one another. There are quarterly area-wide youth activities with other local congregational youth groups
that provide an opportunity for growth and fellowship. Our young men are encouraged to take an active role in our worship services and assemblies. G.R.I.T.S. (Girls Raised in the Scriptures) provides oppor-tunities for our young women to be all that they can be in God’s kingdom. Our annual Vacation Bible School is a time for all ages to engage in fun and fellowship, together renewed in the fact that it is truly a blessing
to be called children of God.
