The purpose of a First Pres Deacon is to minister to those who are in need, the sick, the friendless and to any who may be in distress.

 

Deacons' Fund

The Deacons work hard to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community, and your contributions help make it possible. The Deacons’ Fund allows the Deacons to respond to the emergency needs of the congregation, fund eight Deacon's ministries (including Deacons' Closet, Lamb's Lunch and the Thanksgiving Dinner) and contribute to several local agencies.

 

The First Pres Deacons rely exclusively on dedicated contributions to raise about $40,000 annually to aid those in need.

 

If you’d like to make a donation to the Deacons’ Fund, you can give online below, or use the envelopes in the pews on Sunday mornings.

Supported Groups

 

The Deacons serve the Church community and the Boulder community in the following ways:

  • Deacons' Closet

Special Assistance Deacon’s Fund

The Special Assistance fund exists to assist individuals with one-time critical needs; needs such as shelter, food, clothing, or critical bills that impact a minimal standard of living. It is also available for unexpected emergencies for the individual or immediate family members. The Special Assistance fund exists to create the connection between a needy member of the congregation or community to the grace and providence of our God through the giving of the church to the Deacons' Fund.

Deacons' Closet

Our church Deacons’ Closet continues to safely support community members in need. Email Carol, wissolik@comcast.net, if you have a pick up for the Deacons’ Closet. Do not deliver supplies to the church. A team member will come to you  and pick up from your “front porch.”
