Office of the Deacon ~ from The Book of Order
The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. Persons of scriptural character, honest repute, of exemplary lives, brother and sisterly love, warm sympathies, and sound judgment should be chosen for this office. It is the duty of deacons, first of all, to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith. They shall assume such other duties as may be delegated to them from time to time by the session, such as leading people in worship through prayers of intercession, reading the Scriptures, presenting the gifts of the people, and assisting with the Lord’s supper.
