The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, sincere compassion, and sound judgment should be chosen for this ministry. (The PC(USA) Book of Order)

Deacons' responsibilities at New Life Presbyterian Church include some of the following duties:  Fellowship hour, sending quarterly checks to mission organizations, our Annual Picnic, Caring Tree at Christmas, contacting those who are ill or unable to attend worship with cards, phone calls, home visits, including home communion.
