An ordained office, a Deacon is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example set by Jesus Christ. Our Deacons are a loving, caring group who enjoy working together in a common ministry. They will go the extra mile for church members, as well as members of our community. Deacons serve as their faith, time, talents, and hearts lead them. Each Deacon is connected with a Flock of congregation members. Members are encouraged to share concerns and joys with their Deacon so that prayers and the assistance of appropriate Care Teams can be initiated.
Our Deacon Care Teams include Bereavement, Extended Homebound Communion, Funeral Reception, Greeting cards, Life Transitions, Music Outreach, Post-/High School Outreach, and Homebound/Nursing home outreach.
Deacons serve for a term of three years, and may serve no more than six years consecutively. A Deacon not currently on the Board is still a Deacon.
The Current Board of Deacons:
Nancy Chace, Nancy D’Angelo, Marti Engel, Jill and Tom Gallagher, Lee Guertin, Paige Merten, Isobel Morrison, Roe Murray, Ann Plambeck, Jeanine Segal, Nancy Weigel, Donna Whiteside, Lois Wiggins, Gail Infield – Treasurer, Linda Hassett – Moderator.
