Deacons “minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who many be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith.” ~The Book of Order
Break your leg and can’t drive to church?
Have a family member in the hospital and can’t get home in time to make dinner?
If you’re in need of emergency transportation or meals, let the church know. A member of the Ministry of Deacons will contact your CARE team to arrange…well…CARE!
How do they do all this?
The Deacons divide the entire membership of the church up into 10 different monthly CARE Teams.
CARE stands for Christ-like Attention Reaching Everyone with Empathy.
Each month, a different CARE Team provides emergency meals, emergency rides, emergency “whatever” to the rest of the congregation. (The Deacons themselves CARE for the needs during August, and the entire congregation CARES in December.) Click here for the current Congregational CARE rosters.
