Board of Deacons

Wes Boomgaarden, President

The work of a deacon is intended to be an extension of the ministers’ work.  Deacons promote personal contact among members by means of Neighborhood Networks, which are groups of members from the same geographical area assigned to one or two deacons who will keep in touch with them.  Deacons try to share in their joys, sorrows, and any needs that arise which can benefit from some Church intervention.  Our Board of Deacons are visible in many ways in the life of Overbrook Church.

Ways We Serve:

  • Neighborhood Network Sunday
  • Concerned Deacon
  • Communion Preparation
  • Deliver Easter and Christmas Flowers
  • Home Communion
  • Casserole Ministry
  • Support Church-wide Projects
  • Birthday & Think-of-You Cards
  • Open Shelter
  • Hosting receptions

This Board of Deacons consists of 15 members serving 3 year terms, each assigned a network neighborhood.  They meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month except July and August.
