The Book of Order calls ordained deacons to a ministry of “compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress.”
Considered a model to follow by the Presbytery of Cincinnati, LPC has a strong and active congregational care ministry run by our Board of Deacons. LPC’s deacons are provided the opportunity to exercise their own care giving gifts within the church family, and with friends and family members outside the church. The ministry that our deacon’s gifts provide helps everyone experience God’s love and concern for all people in a variety of ways. It is the duty of the deacons to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress. Please contact the church office if you are interested in becoming a deacon.
