What do Deacons do?

A main focus of the Deacons is connecting with those unable to attend services through visits, phone calls, emails etc. We organize meals for people who are home bound, such as families with a new baby or those who have been through a surgery or loss. We supply on request transportation to church or appointments. We send cards to acknowledge significant milestones and to offer support during grief or illness. The birthday cake for the Fellowship Hour during the last Sunday of the month is supplied by the deacons. We mark the birth of babies as well as the one year anniversary of our members and friends passing with a flower on the communion table. Along with Pastor Tad and the families, we are honored to help plan for and serve at memorial receptions. We always need the help of the congregation, especially for home bound meals and memorial services

Deacon Care Information

Deacons are charged with showing compassionate care to our IPC community. This can be hard to do when we don't know how to get hold of you. Situations have arisen where a parishioner has been ill, had a major life event, or stopped showing up for several months and we were unable to help due to lack of information. Our goal is to collect contact information on as many members and friends of Immanuel as possible so that we may better serve your needs. If you are in the hospital or have an accident, we would like to be able to send a card or get in touch to help. Please help us help you by printing the attached care form, fill it out, mail/drop it off to the church or put it in the offering plate. Please make sure each of the people you list on the form also have Immanuel's phone number and email so that they can reach us if needed. And let them know you would like the church to know how you are doing. This information will be kept in our locked cabinet in the office. Thank you for your help.  As always, please let the deacons know if there is anything you need.
