    March 2018 - Deacons' Corner

    The Board of Deacons relies solely on the generosity of our congregation to help fund our various activities and responsibilities throughout the church and surrounding community.  Deacons regularly 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 month of January 2018 the following donations and/or expenses were paid by the Deacons Fund:           

    Community Meal Center                                             $   100.00
    Open Door Pantry                                                      $   200.00
    Salvation Army                                                          $   200.00
    Family Promise                                                          $   100.00
    Assisting Members                                                     $ 1055.00

    Total Donations/Expenses:                                         - $1655.00

    Collections received                                                   +$  748.00

    Deacons have recently been involved in various activities including:

    Visiting and sending cards to VIP’s
    Stocking shelves at the Open Door Pantry
    Sending out cards to those in need
    Handing out Afghans to those in need
    Helping to prepare and serve communion and work as greeters
    Helping to provide coffee for services
    Helping to organize the Presby’s involvement in the Community Blood Drive held at Zion Lutheran.

    Please prayerfully consider a donation to the Deacons Fund.  During the month of January 2018, we were asked to assist several church members with unexpected expenses.  Our funds are solely dependent upon the congregations’ generosity.  Envelopes are available the first Sunday of each month in the bulletin or in the pew backs.  Additionally, if you would like to donate diapers for the Open Door Pantry, you can drop them off in the church office (Please label for “Deacons”) or give to Marla Richardson.  The Deacons greatly appreciate your continued support. 

    If you know of a person in need or a shut-in who would like a visit from the Deacons, please contact one of the Deacons or the church office at 513-867-5411.  The members of your 2017/2018 Board of Deacons are Rick Jennings (Moderator), Don Armbruster, Christina Bowling, Mike Brumback, Valarie Demoret, Sara Everette, Liz Griffel, Tim Hoskins, Becky Huff, Linda Jennings, Bill Kincer, Prudy Kyle, Heather Lewis, Sandy Palechek, Marla Richardson, John Schuerfranz, Melinda Schuerfranz, Carole Squibb, Cindy Towles, Sandy Vitale, Suzette Wentz and Mary Ann Wolfe.
