Diakonos – literally a person who serves food to other people a servant of the Lord
The ministry of Deacon as set forth in Scripture is on of compassion, witness, service, sharing in the love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, and anyone in distress. It can be a challenging ministry, but the rewards are so great.
Our Church has a small group of dedicated individuals that have accepted the challenge and want to provide help to those in need. We provide flowers and cards to those who could use some encouragement, visit those who need someone to talk with or have listen to their concerns, and transportation to those who are no longer able to drive. We accompany our pastor on visits and assist with the communion service for those that can not attend church.
We’re always concerned that we may be missing someone that could use a friendly visit or card and we’re looking for your help. If you know of anyone that would find a visit or card from a Deacon, please let us know at DeaconsPC@gmail.com.
