Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I; send me!” Isaiah 6:8 NRSV
Board of Deacons
The deacons are important members and officers of the church. They are nurturing, kind and caring. The welfare of their “flocks” is of utmost concern to them. To that end, each deacon is assigned a flock of church members to care for and look after as part of his/her duties as a shepherd.
This caring can consist of contacting their individual members to see how they are doing, visiting them if they are hospitalized, taking them meals, sending cards and keeping them informed about events in the life of the church. The deacons are also responsible for the Prince of Peace meal and flower ministries. Each deacon is a member of at least one committee in the life of the church. The deacons also maintain our Prince of Peace Deacon Handbook, with the help of Marsha Smith who types it for us. Current projects are to update the membership roll and to revamp the prayer list.
The Prince of Peace Fellowship Committee operates under the Board of Deacons.
The Board of Deacons meets monthly during the year.
