Pittsgrove Presbyterian Board of Deacons Annual Report 2015

Once again, the Board of Deacons has had a very busy and fulfilling year.  The Deacons have continued to serve others in traditional ways such as preparing Communion and helping those in need, both in our congregation and the community.  We have worked together and prayerfully discussed how to best support those who are dealing with financial, physical, spiritual, or emotional troubles.  The Prayer Shawl Ministry has continued this year, and has brought comfort and peace to many individuals struggling with sadness, pain, or illness.  Our other services, donations, and activities throughout 2015 were as follows:

 

  • Acme / Shop Rite / WaWa Gift Cards to needy
  • Baby’s first baptism Bible
  • Mitten Tree – 125 items were collected and distributed to both Cornerstone and A Step Ahead.
  • Christmas Angel Tree for 25 individuals
  • Christmas Cantata Reception
  • Deacon’s Corner in Quarterly Newsletter
  • Financial aid for local families in need
  • Gift cards for local families in need and for new parents.
  • Prayer Request Notebook in Narthex
  • Prayer Shawl Ministry
  • Preparing The Lord’s Supper Monthly and assisting in serving
  • Quarter Hour Church Snacks
  • Restocking of Supplies for the Kitchen
  • Sending of Get Well, Happy Birthday, Holiday & Anniversary cards to seniors & shut-ins.
  • Thanksgiving Meal Baskets to 5 local families
  • Visitations to the elderly and shut-ins
  • Weekly bulletins to absent seniors and shut-ins
  • Student Remembrance boxes were sent out to our students during exam time
