Deacons

CPC has a Board of Deacons comprised of men and women elected from the congregation who are called to care for and serve the CPC community in a variety of ways. The Deacons are divided into three “Care Teams”:

The Practical Care Team is tasked with providing meals to those who, for various reasons, need occasional hot meals provided to them. This team utilizes the on-line schedule organizing tool, “Sign-up Genius”, to simplify the organizational side of this ministry. Also, meals are kept in the freezer for those who need a meal on short notice.   

This team also provides transportation for members who need rides to or from doctor appointments or local errands.

The Spiritual Care Team coordinates home communion for our homebound members with the deacons and elders. Additionally, home and hospital visits, along with phone calls to members, are another mission of the Spirituality Care Team.

The Older Adult Care Team keeps track of our “perennial” (55 years and up) members and continues to engage them in the life of the church through small group gatherings and events such as “What’s App?” pairing our senior members with our technologically savvy youth to learn more about their smart phones and tablets.

Additional ministries of the diaconate as a whole include:

  • Following up with those who are grieving the death of a loved one;
  • Following an Inclement Weather Protocol to check-in with folks who are older, homebound, or live alone, prior to and following major weather events like hurricanes and winter storms. 

Please contact the church office at  office@carypresbyterian.org if our Deacons can assist you in any way.
