Deacons at Church of the Covenant are the group that has the specific charge to pay attention to the needs of the people in the church and the people outside the church.
For people in the local circle, Deacons
- Pray for and with those who are experiencing health and spiritual challenges
- Organize special food service for short-term home bound needs
- Keep in regular contact with those who cannot attend weekly worship
- Pay attention to the hospitality extended to strangers by the congregation
They are also very good at maintaining relationships with many local and international service organizations, and manage to give away about $40,000 (from the church’s overall budget) each year to these partners.
