Deacons provide a ministry of service and compassion. As spiritual leaders, they apply their gifts to the needs of the people. From birth to death, life is filled with needs that the deacons support. The deacons celebrate with babies born, grieve in times of loss, offer support to the church when people recover from surgery, are lonely, or simply need a caring presence.


In the PC(USA) BooIMG_6090k of Order, the ministry of the deacon is described as “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.”


Deacons bring communion to people unable to attend worship, as well as in regular worship services. They lead the congregation in bringing meals for support. They keep the congregation in prayer. It is a privilege to be a deacon as they come alongside members of the congregation during important times of life. Being a deacon is a blessing, as they engage these times connected to lives of faith. Contact person: Cynthia Welch at
