Deacon Ministry
Deacon Ministry at Desert Palms: A Ministry of Caring, love, compassion and prayer.

Deacon Ministry

The office of Deacon, as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ. It is a ministry of caring, a ministry of love, a ministry of compassion and a ministry of prayer.

The Deacon Care Program is the primary focus of each of the Deacons as Desert Palms. With a goal of contacting all church members at least twice a year to increase communication, to provide opportunities for sharing joys and concerns and to provide hope and care when needs arise, Deacons are involved almost daily with parishioners’ concerns.  Deacons assist with the work of many committees: Communion, Home Communion, Volunteer Opportunities, Care and Support – and they do a great deal of necessary behind-the-scenes work for the congregation.

If you would be interested in donating a few hours a month to support the vital work of our Deacon Care Ministry, by helping serve home communion to church members who are homebound, or by helping with picking up cakes, or set-up and clean-up for fellowship events, please let us know by calling the church office.

Also, please remember to let us know if you are going to be in the hospital and when you are admitted, tell them you are a member of Desert Palms Presbyterian Church.
