Deacon and Deaconess Teams

The Deacon Ministry, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, being servants of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, shall be committed to giving assistance to the Pastor. The Deacon Ministry efforts are committed to the physical and spiritual well being of the church family. The Deacon Ministry has the responsibility of serving our church family through prayer and visitation. Each family or individual that becomes a disciple of the First Providence Church Family is assigned to a team. Each team has been assigned a Deacon as the Team Lead.

The Pastor and congregation are served and supported by the Deaconess Ministry, which aids the Deacon Ministry in performing its mission. First Providence Baptist Church deaconess becomes a deaconess upon her acceptance when her husband is ordained as a deacon. Ministry responsibilities include:

  • Assist in visiting the sick and shut-in members.
  • Greet members as they enter the church for worship.
  • Assist in cleaning the Lord's Supper utensils.
  • Visit bereaved families and assist with the order of service, if needed.
  • Prepare candidates for Baptism.
  • Follow up to assure Baptism gowns are ready for use.
  • Assist with prayer worship, as required.
  • Counsel young ladies of the church, as needed.
  • Assist Pastor and Deacons in maintaining peace.
