Who We Are
Eighteen Deacons are elected by the congregation via the nominating committee and serve three-year terms. The Deacons meet every third Monday evening of the month to plan their activities and the sponsorship of other worthwhile causes such as the Bloomsburg Food Cupboard.
What We Do
According to the Book of Order (PCUSA’s constitution), Deacons “minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress…” (G.6.0400)
The reach of the deacons is wide and diverse in the church family. They set-up the sanctuary for Worship and other events such as weddings and funerals, they visit sick, they provide transportation and ensure that various publications are readily available.
