The purpose of a First Pres Deacon is to minister to those who are in need, the sick, the friendless and to any who may be in distress.
The Deacons' Fund
The Deacon's Fund is a great tradition of First Pres, allowing the Deacons to respond to the emergency needs of the congregation, eight Deacon's ministries (including Deacon's Closet, Lamb's Lunch and the Thanksgiving Dinner) as well as to 16 local agencies. The First Pres Deacons rely exclusively on dedicated contributions to raise about $60,000 annually to aid those in need.
