In December 2020, the church voted to approve two new deacons, James Braswell and Max Loyd. Now that we have a full deacon council with 12 active deacons, we have updated our deacon flocks. You may notice that you are in a different deacon flock. Please see the chart below to determine your deacon flock.
The role of deacons at FBCP is “to serve as undershepherds of the Church, to concern themselves with the spiritual welfare of the Church, and to serve with the Pastor as co-laborers” (from FBCP ByLaws, Article IV, D, section 1). Each deacon is assigned a flock of active members/participants. Deacons are typically in touch with their flock members from time to time and available if needs arise. Please feel free to contact your deacon if you have a need or if you would simply like to touch base with your deacon. Each month, we will be featuring a “deacon of the month” in the newsletter to help our church family get to know our deacons. Previous deacon features are available in the Newsletter Archive on our website.
- December 15, 2020 – Barbara Blackmon, Deacon of the Month for December/January
- November 17, 2020 – Jim Davis, Deacon of the Month for November
- October 20, 2020 – Cheryl Patterson, Deacon Chair and Deacon of the Month for October
Thank you to our deacons for your willingness to provide leadership, encouragement, and support to our church family!Printable Deacons for 2020-2021 Church Year 20210119
