The Board of Deacons

 

Deacon Headdliner

JesusStainGlassThe Board of Deacons’ mission is to develop and maintain a ministry of care, compassion, and outreach to and with Northside members, friends, and visitors. The Deacons provide greeters for Sunday worship and other services and collect information from the “Friendship Pads” to provide greetings and follow-up to each visitor. The Deacons send well wishes (birthdays, anniversaries, and illness) from the Northside’s “Care List.” Each year on “Heritage Day,” the Deacons coordinate the annual celebration of the life of our church.

 

 

"It is the duty of deacons, first of all to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith."

Our responsibilities include:

* Developing and maintaining a ministry of care, compassion, and outreach to and with members, friends, and visitors.

* Visiting and shepherding shut-ins, sick, inactive, visitors, and all members.

* Providing greeters for worship services.

* Contacting first-time visitors following worship each week.

* Maintaining a record of visitors to worship services.

* Providing assistance when memorial services are held at the church.

* Coordinating our annual Heritage Celebration Day luncheon at the church.

* Providing various ministries including Teddy Bear Ministry, Card Ministry, Floral Ministry, and Journey through Grief.

* Maintaining an updated Manual Of Ministry, (M.O.M.) covering everything that deacons are responsible to do.

* Overseeing a Deacon's Fund and providing annual budget recommendations to the Finance and Facilities Committee.

The Board of Deacons meets quarterly on the first Sunday of the month.
