Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
The purpose of the Deacon Ministry is to assist the pastor in spiritual matters of his work. The Deacon Ministry is committed to each individual and family of New Hope. The deacons strive to make certain each member and their respective families receive the love and support of the congregation.
The Deacon Ministry is dedicated to visiting our sick and shut-in members praying for them and encouraging them. They also provide communion to the sick and shut-in and their caregivers every 1st Sunday. When a church member experiences the loss of a family member, the deacons are there to encourage and pray for the family.
Deacons also communicate and fellowship with members in the following ways:
Deacons share in celebrating the important events and accomplishments of each member.
Deacons are there to listen to your troubles and your concerns.
You are important to us. Believing in the power of prayer, deacons join Pastor Clarke in continually praying for each member of New Hope and their families.
