The purpose of the Deacon/Deaconess Ministry is to help us join together to carry out Jesus’ command and every single member of Penn Valley is included in this command to love one another. We want to make it easier for you to get involved with the church family and make a difference in someone’s life. Our plan is simply to connect those who have needs with those who can meet the needs. It may be as simple as making a phone call or lending a tool - even giving a cup of cold water - (Mt.10:42) … Jesus declares, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for Me.” (Mt.25:40)
If you have felt the Spirit of God working in your heart – stirring up a desire to be the body of Christ, we want to help you! Fill out the Deacon Ministry Survey to indicate ways you might be able to help. When a need surfaces, we will notify everyone who expressed an interest or ability in that area, and you, then, will be able to decide whether or not to volunteer to help with that individual need. Helping will ALWAYS be strictly voluntary.
