Deacons at Christ Presbyterian Church wear a few different hats. To begin with, they coordinate all ministries directed to physical needs of members within the Christ Presbyterian family. When families have had new babies, the Deacons make sure that family is provided for with extra meals and babysitting assistance, along with other sorts of help. Physical care for shut-ins, financial assistance for members who have fallen on hard times all fall in their care. The church has a responsibility to help provide for her members when the time comes, and we rely heavily on the Deacons to do that.
The second area relates to the physical needs of the property. As our new building begins to age this job has grown greatly. Our deacons do a great job in recruiting the church’s “handymen” or hiring professionals to keep the facilities in clean, organized and working order.
The third area is oversight of our financial resources, which ensures our other ministries are able to bear fruit. The deacons are responsible for keeping records related to “giving”, developing our budget, monitoring and reporting on our finances and oversight of our accounting and payroll activities.
In short, the deacons keep the wheels of ministry turning.
