Deacons

 

One of our marks of discipleship at Great Bridge Presbyterian Church is “arms of love,” and we would like to extend those to anyone going through challenging times in their lives. We have many people and groups that can respond to people in need. In addition to our pastors, we have pastor’s aides, deacons, small groups, and a prayer ministry that includes a weekly printed prayer covenant available to the congregation and a prayer chain for emergencies.

Pastors:
Rev. Dr. Ralph Herbert, ralphh@gbpres.org
Rev.  Anita Herbert, anitak@gbpres.org
Pastors’ Aides: 
Frank Brothers, Judi Morgan, June Schrieber, Brenda Sims
Deacon Moderator:  Skip Brady, febrady@verizon.net

The Board of Deacons consists of members serving a three-year term. Every spring new Deacons are nominated and elected by the congregation, receive training from the Pastors and current Deacons, and then are ordained and installed as officers of the church.Each Deacon is assigned a “flock” of people who are members of the church or regular visitors. Eachfamily will receive a letter and a magnet which informs them of the fact that they have someone available to pray for them and to help if they have a crisis; i.e., death, illness, injury, a loss, etc. Deacons can only respond if the member, family member or friend calls, so please keep it handy and feel free to use it.

The Deacon’s role is to support members by providing friendship, prayer, support, and coordinating meals if needed. Help is available to non-members by calling the church office and a Deacon will be assigned, temporarily, to meet the existing need. Deacons are trained to keep needs confidential unless the member requests the help of the Board to pray for them or help them, in some way, as a group. Deacons serve in many different ways including serving communion, serving as liturgists, praying for and supporting the youth, and forming support groups as requested by members of our congregation.
