    April 2015 - Deacons' Corner

    The Board of Deacons relies on the generosity of our congregation to help fund our various activities and responsibilities throughout the church and surrounding community.  Deacons serve on all of our church's committees, as well as on the Open Door Pantry Operations Committee, help church and community members with financial needs, visit shut-ins, provide meals and flowers for funerals and memorial services, and also help with church-wide events.

    During the months of January and February, the following donations and/or expenses were paid by the Deacons' Fund: 

    • $  200.00   Creative Center for Children Scholarships
    • $  400.00   Open Door Pantry
    • $  400.00   Salvation Army
    • $  320.00   Memorial Donations
    • $1,000.00  Support for those in need
    • $  450.00   Men's Mission Trip
    • $2,770.00  TOTAL Expenses

    Collections received over the same period total $2,674.64

    During the first months of 2015, Deacons have been involved in various activities:

    • Stocking shelves at Open Door Pantry
    • Sending out cards to those in need
    • Providing blood pressure screenings
    • Handing out Afghans to those in need
    • Helping to prepare and serve communion
    • Participating in the Maundy Thursday Tenebrae Service
