The Deacons provide a ministry of compassion and care. They minister to shut-ins and those in need of care through visitations, food, and cards. They also have an outreach mission to the Mercer Street Friends Food Pantry, and along with the Nursery School, they collect hats, gloves, and scarves for the annual Christmas Giving tree.
In 2017 the EPC Care Team was established to care for the needs of our congregation. The Care Team will cover visitation, ride sharing, meals, respite, and connections to social services.
Requests for help can be directed to the following contacts:
Respite Care: firstname.lastname@example.org
Social Services: email@example.com
Weekly, the Deacons support worship services through ushering and providing fellowship refreshments.
