Hi! My name is Jackie Kowal, ordained Deacon at Emmaus since 2015. I'm humbled
to be called again to serve as Deacon Chair. I look forward to serving the congregation and those outside of the church. As New Kent County continues to grow may we extend fellowship within the community. I pray that God will lead us forward in our transitions into the future.
James 3:17 says, " But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. "
Come and experience Gods love at Emmaus Baptist Church,
Becoming a Deacon for the first time in 2013 was a very humbling experience. I have felt God’s presence in my life ever since I can remember. He has guided me through rough patches leading some people to say that I am an “overcomer”. It was during those times that I drew even closer to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and it was He who got me through those days. I asked Jesus to come into my life when I was 16 years old. My whole family had begun attending church together, which was previously uncommon. Usually my father would drop my sister, brother, and myself off at church for Sunday School and pick us up afterwards. My parents did not typically attend at that time. Finally, God led us to worship together as a family and my father, sister, and I were baptized on the same day. Now having the opportunity to serve other families in our church and community gives me great joy and opportunity to spread God’s word and never-ending love and guidance. One of my favorite pieces of scripture comes from Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” This is the word of the Lord, Thanks be to God always. If you are seeking a place of worship, understanding, and compassion, our doors and arms are open to you.
I have been a Deacon since 2016. I started my walk with Christ as a young child, attending VBS at Emmaus in the summers, since my grandmother was a long-time member here. Although I was a member of St. Peter’s Episcopalchurch, also in New Kent, when I was in high school my grandmother needed to have someone drive her to Emmaus and that led me to start to more regularly attend service here. Eventually I felt led to become a member in 2004 and requested to be re-baptized that same year. When I consider all the meaningful pieces of scripture that has influenced my life, I think of the first scripture my grandmother helped me to memorize, Psalm 23. While many people may associate this scripture with funerals, deep reflection on the words that were so eloquently penned, I can’t help but feel God’s fierce closeness and protectiveness when we, his children, face troubles in our lives. God urges us to stand strong and know that He is always in control, protecting us, and leading us to a better day and to follow his guidance.
Psalm 23: KJV
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
My name is Dayne McNabb, ordained Deacon since October 2021. I am honored and grateful to serve on the Deacon Board of Emmaus Baptist Church. Long before I became a member of Emmaus, I looked for ways to serve the congregation as well as the community.
1 Peter 4:10 says "Each should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms."
I enjoy helping people and look forward to being of service whenever and wherever I can.
