The office of Deacon is one of sympathy, witness and service, after the example of Jesus Christ himself, who came to the earth not to be served, but to serve. Deacon's have been serving congregations from the very beginnings of the church. The Deacons at NCPC carry on this same devotion in many ways. Deacons are the congregation's arm of compassion and hospitality both inside and outside the church. The duty of a Deacon is to minister to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to anyone in distress.
The following Deacon teams are dedicated to providing for the needs of members and friends and walking alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ to provide a friendly connection to the church.
Deacon Care for the Congregation Team: Our focus is specifically caring for the intensive needs of the congregation. This may include providing meals, visiting people in the hospital, providing ongoing prayer and encouragement for people experiencing major health challenges, and also visiting people who are homebound. Contact the Congregational Care Team Leader.
Deacon Finance Team: Our goal is to provide caring and compassionate financial assistance to members and friends of NCPC. Contact the Deacon Finance Leader.
Sunday Deacon Team: Our desire is to facilitate access and to be a connection between the person in need and the other Deacon Ministries at NCPC. Contact the Sunday Deacon Team Leader
Deacons help carry life's burdens with you no matter what stage of life or circumstances you may be facing and together all the resources the church has to offer because you are not alone in your walk with Christ.
Though the needs within a congregation may change as our world around us changes, the servant heart of a Deacon is steadfast and dedicated to the care and assistance of our friends and members.
