Boards and Committees
Board of Deacons
Extending the care and fellowship of the congregation to all members.
This is most often accomplished by keeping each member of the parish in touch with the life and concerns of the entire congregation. Deacons usually contact each member every month by visit, phone call, letter or note, or during coffeehour. The contact may involve informing the members about upcoming congregational events such as the annual picnic, special worship services or educational events. The contact may also be to inform members of a death or ask for prayers for a particular person or situation.
