A deacon is called and empowered by God to serve the sick, the hungry, the friendless, and those in distress both within the church congregation and in the community beyond.
Teams of Deacons are charged with ministering to the members of the congregation for particular regions called parishes, providing for their care and comfort. Deacons also greet at the 10 AM service every Sunday and visit with parishioners by delivering flowers after the service.
To support the needs of our community, Deacons run blood drives three times a year and oversee a well-established food ministry program providing food baskets and local grocery store gift card to families with food insecurities as well as collecting non-perishable goods for a local food pantry.
Abington Presbyterian Church’s Board of Deacons has 24 deacons who serve in three classes.
