The Deacons focus on a ministry of compassion and service by sharing the love of Christ. If you have a need or know someone that could benefit from any of the services below, please contact us.

Parish Visitation

As an outreach of pastoral care, each month Deacons visit parishioners who are house-bound, home from the hospital or travel-restricted, offering fellowship and compassion. For more information, please contact Mike Packer.

Food Boxes at Christmas and Easter

The Angel Tree and Easter Egg projects serve to spread the good news through giving to families in need. Boxes of food and presents are delivered locally and to inner city locations. For more information, please contact Cheryl McBrearty or Chris Poulos.

For 2017, the dates for sign-up are 11/19, 11/26, 12/3, and 12/10 - after all three services.

The Angel Tree box drop off at Church is on 12/16 from 8 am - 10 am.

Career Networking

The mission of Career Networking is to serve all of those who are in a career transition, considering a career transition or who just want additional opportunities to network. Aligned with Joseph’s People - Mainline, this group meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, September through May, at Wayne Presbyterian from 6:00-7:30 pm in the Fireside Room.  Please join us at any meeting if you are looking for a job, need help networking or writing a resume, or are hopeful of making a career change.
