Deacon's Ministry

What do Deacons do?

  • Helping Hands - To meet the temporary needs of the congregation (for example: transportation to appointments, cards, meals, errands, emergency situations).
  • Homebound Care - To minister to those in our congregation who are homebound through a visitation program and by means of the service of Holy Communion (to be done in conjunction with the Pastor).
  • Hospitality - To provide refreshments to the congregation and visitors in order to encourage fellowship following Sunday worship and at other appropriate times.
  • Reaching Out - To direct and publicize to the congregation the reaching out ministries of Good Shepherd and the wider Church (for example: the Giving Tree, Food Closet, Sharing Table).
  • Prayer Partners - To provide a means of communicating prayer needs with members who are willing to serve the church by praying.
  • Open Door - When members of Good Shepherd are ill at home or in the hospital.
  • Crisis Intervention - To serve as an intervention in people's lives when they have needs. That is, emergency situations/needs of our church members, regular visitors or strangers.
