The Deaconess Ministry’s principal duty is to aid the Mother’s Ministry during Holy Communion and other duties as directed by the pastor. According to Romans 16:1, Phoebe, which was a servant at Cenchrea, was considered the first deaconess of the church. She was considered a “helper”.

 

We have been assigned to pray for the young ladies of the church, our pastor and his family. We visit the sick and shut-in; hospital and nursing home facilities as the need arrives. We have outreach ministries which include our church food bank and schools of the community.

 

We acknowledge JESUS CHRIST as the lead and guide for our pastor and we are guided by HIS spirit to do what is pleasing in HIS sight.

 

 

Deaconess Sheila Hamilton
