Deacons Ministry

“It is the duty of Deacons, first and foremost, to minister to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless and to any who may be in distress. Deacons do this by providing internal ministry to the needs of our congregation, inspiring and expanding congregational awareness and providing external ministry to those in need within Lake County.”

  • See below for a list of ministries we serve.

  • Cancer with Grace

    If you or a loved one has ever been touched by cancer, come lay your burdens down with others on that path. The group meets twice a month on Thursdays at 11:00 a.m., offering spiritual and emotional support in a confidential setting. This group is open to the community.

    Informing the Church

    When you or a loved one are ill, hospitalized or facing surgery, please let the church know so you can be held in prayer and our pastors can be in touch.
 Contact Kristie Finley at kfinley@firstchurchlf.org.

    Prayer Chain

    Prayer requests are confidential and shared with the prayer chain “links” by email.
 Share your joy or concern.

    Prayer Shawl Ministry

    Create hand knitted or crocheted shawls to give to those who are experiencing a catastrophic event in their life. The yarn is prayed over before the knitting begins and prayed over while the shawl is being created. The group blesses each shawl with prayer before presenting it, with a card expressing the hopes and thoughts of the creators and all Presbyterian Women.
 The group meets on Tuesdays from 1 – 2 p.m.
