NEW FAMILY MEMBERS
When families grow with births, adoptions, and in-home care of family members, the Deacons will welcome and help create a sense of belonging and caring.
For those not able to attend church and take part in communion, our Deacons are available upon request to serve communion in the home, hospital, or rehabilitation facility. The Deacons are responsible for purchasing the bread and setting up the communion table each month.
Deacons visit our EWPC family whenever possible during their stay in the hospital or a rehabilitation facility.
Whenever someone in our church family needs assistance because of illness, hospitalization, or other life-altering events, the Deacons prepare and deliver meals to the individual or family. The congregation is invited to provide meals during more extended periods of need.
MEMORIAL SERVICE RECEPTIONS
The Deacons, along with members of the Hospitality Committee, work together to ensure the family has the necessary support before and following a memorial service.
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
Shawls are made by both knitters and crocheters in our church congregation and given out to folks who need “comforting” as a symbol of unconditional love from our Heavenly Father. Our prayer is that the prayer shawls given out will wrap, enfold, comfort, and give solace to the recipients.
When possible, Deacons facilitate transportation arrangements for the EWPC church family who are unable to drive or find alternative transportation to regular or special EWPC events, medical appointments, etc.
