Deacons are people who are good at caring and connecting. In this busy world, it’s not always easy to find ways to connect with people, but each Deacon finds a way to do so that works for them. Some like to write cards, some prefer a telephone call, some bake, and some prefer to email. The thing that Deacons have in common is a commitment to care for the members of BelPres.
Each member is assigned a Deacon, and we have some Deacons who respond to non-members when in crisis (major or minor). We encourage you to get to know your Deacon. If you don’t know who your Deacon is, call Prayer + Care at the church office, or email Mona Chicks.
What It's Like Being a Deacon
Deacons are skilled at caring and connecting. Do you know someone who is great at connecting with people? Are you? It doesn’t have to take a lot of time, but the impact is immeasurable.
Contact Mona Chicks for more information, or with a Deacon nomination. The nomination season is January through March each year, but if you know of someone who would make a great Deacon, please let us know any time of year.
