Meet the first Sunday of each month after worship.

From the By-Laws of the First Baptist Church in Swansea:

It shall be the duty of the Deacons to cooperate with the Pastor in the temporal and spiritual affairs of the church, to meet with applicants for church membership and recommend for church fellowship their action to be ratified by the congregation, to visit the sick, and shut-in, to distribute the elements at the Lord’s Supper, to fulfill the Office of Trustees, to determine the use of the church property and furnishings and to provide pastoral services in the absence of the Pastor. At the decease of a member they shall order a floral piece.
