"The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is 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 opporesssed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, sincere compassion, and sound judgment should be chosen for this ministry." (Book of Order, G-2.0201)
The Deacons of the church are ordained to their office to minister to the sick, brokenhearted, lonely and hurting people in the church and in the community. We hope you will join us in our ministry. Please see below for upcoming opportunities.
Suicide Prevention Training
We host suicide prevention training, facilitated by Payne County Youth Services, on a regular basis. For the foreseeable future, these trainings will be held via Zoom.
Our Daily Bread Volunteer Days
The FPC Deacons volunteer at Our Daily Bread quarterly. We help sort food deliveries, stock shelves, assist with grocery shopping, and help provide a warm welcome to all. All ages are invited to come volunteer, including children accompanied by an adult. Our next volunteer day will be Saturday, November 20th.
Ministers make regular hospital visits. If you are in the hospital, please let us know.
Prayer Shawl and Prayer Square Ministry
Members of the congregation knit and crochet prayer shawls which are given to individuals experiencing crisis, illness, or transition in their life. Prayer Squares can be sent to servicemen and women serving our country overseas or given to anyone who would appreciate carrying one in their pocket or purse.
The Deacons are available to bring and serve the Bread of Life and Cup of Salvation with homebound members.
