The deacon gets his first big murder case. But when a key witness cannot be located and the judge refuses to grant an extension, he plays up his incompetence in order to get a mistrial for his client (Peter Jurasik).
A fund-raiser at the church takes an unexpected turn when the church gets sued for making someone sick with tainted macaroni salad. During the trial, Deacon Frye takes matters into his own hands to win the case.
The deacon has defended Roxanne and she has been found not to have murdered her husband. Now, there is nothing to stand in the way of his romantic passions for her...except for Thelma, and a fire in the church.
Ernie begs Santa to rehire him, and Santa gives him a second chance. He works with his client to get the charges dismissed. Meanwhile, Thelma has her fill of criticism from Reuben's mother (Jane White).
Thelma daydreams about beginning married life with the reverend. Meanwhile, the deacon has a vision of the reverend as his son-in-law. And then there's Reuben who sees the influence that Ernie has on one of his sons.
Nobody in the First Community Church can keep a secret. When word gets out that Ruben is about to propose marriage to Thelma, the whole congregation drops what they were doing, and shows up at the church to witness the blessed event.
