A Deacon is someone who loves the Lord and acts upon that love with gifts of service through a variety of ministries. They come alongside those in our congregation and community with the love and hope of Jesus during times of needed support.
UPC deacons are ordained to minister to the congregation and are trained and equipped to:
+ Visit in hospitals, care-facilities and homes offering prayer, spiritual encouragement and comfort.
+ Assist individuals and families in times of crisis and be prayer intercessors on behalf of the congregation.
+ Provide tangible support in times of need and loss.
+ Serve communion to our homebound members and friends.
+ Administer the deacon emergency fund to help those facing financial crisis
+ Deacons will shepherd and invite others into caring for those in need of hope and care.

Due to privacy laws, we need you to please let us know when you are scheduled to be in the hospital and would like a deacon to come and minister to you with prayer.
The Deacon Fund provides emergency financial assistance to individuals and families and supports ministries that serve the UPC congregation and community. Several times a year an offering is taken which goes toward the Deacon Fund. This fund allows us to help individuals within our church family and our community who have suffered a setback due to unemployment, medical crisis, or other personal trauma. If you are in need of emergency financial help contact 206.524.7301 x543, Deacon Fund Request
