There are 12 people chosen by the congregation as Deacons who provide leadership in the care of congregational members. Their work supplements and supports the work of staff members and the rest of the congregation. Each Deacon is assigned family units to maintain contact and provide care. Some of the Board of Deacons responsibilities are Helping Hands, Home Communion, Communion preparation and cleanup, and other duties as assigned by the Session.
DO YOU KNOW YOUR DEACON?
Does he or she know who you are? Come to the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, September 17th, between the services beginning at 9:45 a.m. for "Meet Your Deacon Sunday." Look for the Deacons' list to find your name and your Deacons' name. Then waste no time in finding his/her table to meet and greet each other. Come and get to know your Deacon and discover ways to connect at First Presbyterian Church. Tasty goodies will be offered and you will be on to a great start!
This year's Deacons are:
Rainy Birch, Chris Buckmaster, Vee Canning (Moderator), Brenda Lovik, Bonnie McCloskey, Marty Melcher, Cindy Sofie, Pat Warren, Scooter Chapman, Jodee Force, Karen Walter, and Chris Watkins.
Helping Hands provides services for our congregation and friends in times of need.
