According to the Bible, deacons are to serve the people by helping to meet the physical needs of the body, and they are to support the pastors. Deacons at Rocky Creek desire to be focused on service and ministry opportunities.
Don Gregg, Rod Hochmuth, and Chuck Hunt desire to serve the body at Rocky Creek as deacons in 2019-2022 (3 year term). They have been examined, and they have affirmed their understanding of the role of deacon and how they can serve Rocky Creek. Please pray for these men, and on Sunday morning, August 11, you will have an opportunity to affirm each of these men as deacons.
Don Gregg and his wife of almost 24 years, Anna, along with their adult children began attending Rocky Creek in the spring of 2018. Don is a department manager for Hobby Lobby (Taylors location) and Anna is in customer service at Roll Technology Corporation. Their children, Jamison (22) works with MAU at BMW, Allison (20) is a junior music therapy major at Charleston Southern University, and Ashlee Mae (19) is a sophomore biology education major at Charleston Southern University. Both daughters just completed working at Camp Spearhead for their 2nd year and have a huge love for the special needs community. When they are home from college they serve in the preschool department and David’s Table.
Currently, Don leads an adult Gospel Group at 10:30AM on Sundays and Anna loves on the Rocky Creek babies and crawlers with our preschool ministry. Don has previously served on staff at other churches as a children/youth minister. He and his family love to serve together whenever possible. Don and Anna are in the process of going through orientation with Miracle Hill to be able to help serve the Children’s Home – Ligon Cottage (high school girls). Also, Don has completed the training to become a mentor at Perry Correctional and is awaiting confirmation. Don has been blessed with the gifts of knowledge, teaching, acts of service and wisdom. Don and his family are looking forward to becoming more involved with the Rocky Creek family to help go into all the world sharing God’s love.
