  • Deacons

    Anchor Baptist Church is richly blessed with an abundance of men willing to serve as deacons. Our present group of men maintain our buildings, manage our accounts, and are ready sources of counsel in the operation of the facility, the watch-care of the body, and the mundane yet needed tasks in the process of churching. We are surely the better for their service.
