Deacons at WCPC lead and coordinate the compassionate care of our membership, seek to share the love of Christ, and serve those in need. Each deacon serves a three year term, has assigned families from within the membership, and serve on one of the diaconate ministry teams. Members of the congregation are welcome and encouraged to serve on these committees. Below are descriptions of the diaconate ministry teams.
The ministry of deacon as set forth in 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 judgment should be chosen for this ministry.
