The Deacons seek to personify our church's mission, "Sharing Christ's Love Through Service." These officers commit to carrying out several responsibilities within the church and throughout the community.
Deacons serve to reach beyond the walls of the church with service, sympathy, and witness. By supporting Caring Ministry, providing transportation to and from church, preparing meals, and aiding community support groups, this group aims to fulfill its goal of service. Through cards to members, visits with those unable to attend Sunday service, and fellowship with the entire congregation in and outside the chruch, the Deacons hope to fulfill the goals of sympathy and witness.
Within the United Presbyterian Church of Jamestown, our Deacons have organized game nights, fellowship dinners, Salvation Army bell ringing, church transportation, and charitable giving opportunities. To promote the community of the United Presbyterian Church of Jameston, the Deacons give gifts to graduates, college students, new parents, servicemen and women, and others.
By the tenets of sympathy, witness, and service, the Deacons strive to "Share Christ's Love Through Service" with the church and community of Jamestown. As Christ reached out to us, the Deacons hope to emulate His mission.
