The Deacons at FPC Westminster
The Deacons of the First Presbyterian Church are chosen by
the congregation for three year terms as required by the Book of Order. These
servants of God quietly minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the
congregation and the outside community. They collect food for the needy, flowers
for the worship service, write to those in military service, care for the elderly,
prepare and help serve communion, and hundreds of other tasks.
The Deacons meet at 11:45 am on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
Money, food, clothing and other suitable gifts can be given directly to the Deacon
for distribution to shut-ins and the needy.
