A Deacon is someone who loves the Lord and acts upon that love with gifts of service through a variety of ministries, including calling on new members to extend the hand of friendship and welcome them into the Red Clay family, visiting elderly members, serving Communion to home-bound members, delivering flowers to those who are ill or shut-in, bringing meals to families in need of encouragement, and planning events to encourage fellowship among members. The below represents just a few of the core ministries of the deacons.

Coffee and Fellowship

Our deacons host Coffee Hour each Sunday after worship. Coffee, lemonade, snacks, and fellowship are on the menu - all are invited to Founders Hall! That's not where their hospitality ends! The deacons are involved in almost every church function that involves the kitchen - including funeral receptions and church dinners.

Tuesdays Together

Our Tuesdays Together luncheons take place on on the second Tuesday of most months at noon in Founders Hall. We do not meet in the summer. We look forward to welcoming new and old friends into this monthly fellowship. Come enjoy a home cooked meal shared with church staff and friends. There is no charge for the lunch. Reservations are required in advance. If you plan to attend the luncheon, please click on the button below.

Keep in Touch (KIT)

In an effort to Keep in Touch with members that we have not seen in some time, our Deacons regularly follow up to check in on how things are going. During and after COVID, this became an increasingly important ministry as we have worked hard to maintain connection with those that are unable to be in large groups.

Cards and Flowers

The deacons have an ongoing card ministry that reaches out to those that need a pick me up. In addition, the flowers from worship are hand delivered each week by a deacon to a person that is need of care or congratulations. After Christmas Eve and Easter, the deacons deliver the pointsettias and tulips to shut ins. These small acts of love are always greatly appreciated!

Help with Delivery

Serve Meals

When it comes time to serve food to the congregation, the deacons are always there. Whether it be at a funeral reception, our annual Advent Dinner, celebratory cakes, and other special events, the deacons take care of making sure everyone is fed and that the event senses the Red Clay hospitality.
