Emmaus Road diaconate

The office of Deacon is one of sympathy and service, after the example of the Lord Jesus; it expresses also the communion of saints, especially in their helping one another in time of need. It is the duty of the deacons to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress.

  • Lori cramer

    Deacon Assistant

    Lori grew up in northern Michigan and moved to Wisconsin after college. While she works part-time for two small companies (PoppingFUN and Pfhix) and volunteers as a Girl Scout leader, she spends much of her time managing the family calendar and making sure everyone gets where they need to be with whatever they need to have with them. Over the years, Lori has served the church in various capacities, but this will be her first experience on a deacon team. She wants to join the deacon team as an opportunity to connect with more people and find different ways to share God's love with others. She also looks forward to working alongside Dan on the deacon team as they typically have served in different ways and on different schedules.

  • Scott tobias

    deacon

    Scott considers the opportunity to serve Emmaus Road as a deacon as an honor which he believes fits his gifting. He prefers to work behind the scenes: helping, fixing, building, listening, and guiding. He has served as a deacon for many years in a previous church and has been blessed to see how a little help can change a person’s life. Along with his wife, Sandy, he looks forward to serving this body that has become their church family.


    SANDY TOBIAS

    DEACON ASSISTANT

     

    Sandy would like to partner with Scott to serve our church family side by side with him as a deacon assistant. She would find it a joy to touch lives together and help others in our church body.  She is especially excited to help develop ways that our church can be more involved with the community at large to help spread the love of Christ that has grown so richly in our church.
