The HP Pres Deacon Ministry serves the individual needs of our members. Our deacons are ordained leaders of our church who minister to our members in Christ-centered ways. They serve a four-year term and are organized into deacon-led service teams that specialize in ministering to different needs, such as supporting those dealing with grief and loss or celebrating births.
This Team serves members who are celebrating a birth, grieving a death, or have just been released from the hospital. Angel Food Ministry weekly prepares home-cooked meals. The group meets to assemble and pray over the meals, and deliver to the recipient’s homes. This Deacon led team is also supported by reserve deacons as well as dedicated Covenant Partners.

Contact the Independent/Assisted Living Team
This Team assists during a church memorial service or inurnment. Team members arrive early and greet, usher, and handle the guest registry. Team members are often needed in the Parlor to be with the family. Service on the memorial team is an opportunity to serve grieving families by welcoming their families and guests and providing comfort at this difficult time.
Contact the Memorial Service Team
This Team writes heartfelt condolence letters to members who have lost a family member both at the time of death and also on the one-year anniversary of death.

This Team prays weekly for individual members, small groups, the entire church, and beyond the church walls. Absolute confidentiality is respected unless a wider prayer circle is requested by the petitioner. If you have a passion for prayer and/or want to explore going deeper, come join. If you desire individual prayer, come and let us pray for you.
