The Deacon Ministry is intended to be an extension of the Ministry Team. We are here to serve the congregation as liaisons to the Pastor for prayer requests, family announcements (births, deaths, marriages, etc.) and requests for the church to be "the church." In an administrative sense, we also receive reports from the choir and usher ministries and are there to support them in whatever way we can.
Obviously, this list isn't "all-inclusive," and in some cases we're called on to be something different/more, or less. Ultimately though, I think that's what makes the Deacon Ministry such a blessing to Christ The King UCC. We're in place to help support Pastor Traci's mission for the church - however that may look. So our biggest strength is our willingness to serve!!
