Our vision at RPC is to create Relationships with a Purpose – to grow in Christ-centered relationships and shine God’s light. These Relationships are intentional, organic, simple, tangible, purposeful, and collaborative. The Purpose is for each relationship to foster a deeper connection with God and each other.
“Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand – shine!
Keep open house; be generous with your lives.
By opening up to others, you’ll prompt others to open up with God.”
Matthew 5:14-16 (MSG)
As Deacons we strive to live by these words, reaching out to meet the emerging needs of our congregation and our community.
What do Deacons do?
The Deacons give compassion, witness and service to people in the church and nearby. They inspire and encourage other Christians to do similar acts involving caring, spiritual support, and practical help.
The particulars of the Deacon’s work will vary according to the needs and changes in the congregation. However, some of their basic ministries involve keeping caring relationships through contacts with members and friends of the church in the form of visits, letters, phone calls, e-mails, and other channels of personal communication. They lend physical, emotional, and spiritual support to people in need. They collaborate with the Pastor and other church leaders in an attempt to keep everyone in the church involved in caring for one another.
Confidentiality is an important aspect of what we do and you should have every expectation that whatever you share with any of the Deacons will remain in confidence according to your wishes.
We appreciate the call to serve Redmond Presbyterian Church in this ministry and ask for your prayers for the work we do as Deacons.
