​Duties Of Our Deaconesses

The work of deacons and deaconesses is multi-faceted. Here are a few examples of the main roles they perform in the local church or congregation:

  • Visiting church members in their homes
  • Reclaiming missing members and backsliders
  • Supporting and helping the sick, the elderly, the disabled, and the bereaved
  • Caring for and relieving the poor and aiding the unfortunate
  • Caring for and maintaining the church property
  • Teaching God’s Word when situations demand it
  • Serving the church in a variety of areas: the worship service, Sabbath School, the Communion service, baptismal ceremonies, funerals, and other church functions
