As the early Church in Jerusalem grew, the Apostles were confronted by increasing demands from  a multiplying congregation as well the challenges that come from serving a diverse community. For our deacon installation service, Pastor Reed preaches on Acts 6:1-7 which describes the actions the early Church took to address the challenges of managing the physical needs of widows within their growing community.

The passage covers the appointment of an early diaconate and what we can learn from the circumstances and resolution.  This is a sermon recorded at the Lebanon Bible Fellowship Church in Lebanon, PA during the morning service on 9/17/2023 entitled “Early Deacons” by Pastor Calvin Reed. It is taken from  Acts 6:1-7.
