Deacons

“Whoever among you wants to be great must become the servant to all.” Mark 9:34Flowers for sick

The ministry of Deacon as set forth in the Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, sincere compassion and sound judgement should be chosen for this ministry.   If you are in need of Deacon services or would be interested in assisting with this ministry, you may email the church office or call (732) 223-4627.  Below are some of the Deacon ministries.

The Deacons are always grateful for those who would like to participate in the following areas of ministry:

  • Caring for home-bound church family as well as others who need a loving, caring touch by visiting, mailing of church bulletins, and sending notes and cards as a way of communicating the church’s concern for them.
     
  • Sponsoring blood drives.
     
  • Respond to the special needs of the church family by hosting receptions during periods of bereavement and providing meals to families in crisis.
     
  • Preparing elements for Communion services, cleaning after Communion, and maintenance of all communion ware.
     
  • Delivering flowers to members, friends or relatives of the church family as expressions of love and concern for the sick and the bereaved. They also may be delivered to convey congratulations, thanks, etc. Rosebuds are presented for newborns. Poinsettias and lilies are delivered to church family at Christmas and Easter, respectively.
     
  • Providing greeters for all church services.
     
  • Coordinating with the Manasquan Food Pantry to provide Easter baskets and Christmas presents to children whose families are in need.
     
  • Organizing Christmas Caroling in the community for the congregation’s participation.
     
  • Helping families through the Social Concerns Committee.
