Deaconesses

The Galilee deaconess committee is committed to serving the Galilee community as a whole. We focus on women age 16 and older but also consider single men to be under our watchcare. The following is a brief discription of areas in which we serve.

Newborns are welcomed with a personalized baby Bible. We assist with baptism by providing towels and a changing area. We are happy to personally assist ladies in the preparation room .

We provide meals for those who are ill or in family crisis. We have a large group of volunteer 'cooks' from t he congregation at large who help us in this area. We also provide and serve luncheons for family and friends before or after a memorial service.

We are especially excited about the womens Bible studies. Though we help to plan and oversee the Bible studies it is the ladies devoted to leading those groups that deserve our gratitude.

We sponsor one or two social events for the ladies each year. The focus is on guest speakers and activities that center around a theme. We try to remember our pastors and missionaries with a gift of acknowledgement for their service at least once a year.

We have an on going ministry of encouragement. We send cards for birthdays, anniversaries , get well, sympathy and any time a special word is needed. Our prayer ministry is the most vital part of our service to the Galilee community.
