Draw Us in the Spirit’s Tether
Hymn 529 – verse 3
All our meals and all our living
Make as sacraments of you,
That by caring, helping, giving,
We may be disciples true.
We will serve with faith anew.
Our focus for the Deacons’ newsletter article this month is the reorganization of offering communion to home-bound congregants and those in the hospital or in other health-care facilities.
Pastor Deb recognized a need for this reorganization. She and John Milne have trained Deacons and Elders who have expressed interest in taking communion to congregants after church on Communion Sundays. John has also put together a printed guide to help those who are going out in pairs or small groups to serve communion.
On Communion Sundays there will be a commissioning of Deacons and Elders who will be serving in this special way. Additional Deacons and Elders are welcome to sign up to be trained for this ministry.
There will not be a “Supper and a Song” event in March this year, but there are plans to have a similar event in early fall! Enjoy these lengthening days as we look forward to spring!
Blessings! The Deacons
