August is an Opportunity to Give to the Deacons’ Fund

Many of us no longer use offering envelopes, so we don’t get that little twice-a-year reminder about the Deacons’ Fund.

In the midst of our blessings, however, the Deacons ask that you remember those who are not as fortunate as we are.  While there is wealth of ways the Deacons reach out, the Deacons’ Offering directly funds the Card Ministry, Visitation, and Bereavement materials, as the Deacons reach out personally to the ill and the grieving.

The Deacons also are involved in other ministries of the church, importantly the Food Pantry Plus, which not only operates the Food Pantry but also supports school supplies as well as diapers for Food Pantry children, and nutritional and hygiene supplies for senior citizens. 

No matter what the season, the Deacons are ready to offer help. We ask that you join us this August and through the year in lending a helping hand and heart to those in need.

Please consider giving to the Deacons’ fund, either with the traditional envelope, with a check marked “Deacons’ Fund” or online through MyFPCY. You may also directly contribute to Food Pantry Plus.

We are grateful for the support of our congregation and community. We welcome your suggestions, your participation, and your prayers for our ministry.
