Deacons Meet and Greet
Sunday, June 4, after each service
Get to know your deacon. Find out what being a deacon is all about and how they can be of service to you.
As the Book of Order puts it, “The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, of exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, warm sympathies, and sound judgment should be chosen for this office” (G-6.0401). It is a ministry of caring; a ministry of love; a ministry of compassion; and a ministry of prayer, and community service (G-6.0402).

Living Stones: Peacemakers in the Holy Land
This presentation is available on our YouTube channel.
Throughout Pastor Matt’s pilgrimage to the Holy Land, he and his fellow pilgrims met with a number of peacemakers who are committed to bringing a just, peaceful, and lasting resolution to the Israel-Palestine conflict. They are Christians, Muslims, Israeli, Palestinian, clerics, international workers, artists, farmers, scientists, activists, and parents who find healing in sharing stories of their losses in the hope of reconciliation. Their common desire is that their stories would be shared and that peace could once again come to the Holy Land.
Hear the stories of these peacemakers—stories of tragedy, struggle, hope, and friendship—and how, despite the ongoing tensions in the Holy Land, God is at work building bridges of peace and shining beacons of hope. This presentation is available on our YouTube channel.
