Deacons The Ministry of Compassion and Service
The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures or anyone in distress (Book of Order 2015/2017).
Do YOU know who YOUR Deacon is? Does he or she know who you are? Stop by
Fellowship Hall on Sunday, August 20th immediately following each service for “Meet Your Deacon Sunday.” Come and get to know your deacon and other members of your Cluster.
Each Sunday leading up to Meet Your Deacon Sunday we will answer a few common questions people have about deacons:
Q: What are all the elected positions of the church?
A: Elders, Deacons, and Trustees
Q: What is the difference between an elder and a deacon?
A: An elder is a ruling member of the church who deals with the business side of things. Elders serve on the Session and are the governing council of the church. A deacon deals more with the spiritual side of things. Deacons are the Christian caregivers of the church
Q: How are people chosen to be deacons?
A: The Congregational Nominating Committee (CNC) seeks to find people who feel called to use their spiritual gifts to serve as a Christian caregiver
We look forward to seeing you August 20th!
