The word deacon means “servant.” While Jesus calls every Christian to be a servant, he has created a special office in the church to set the tempo for service. This is the office of the deacon. At Crossroads the work of the deacons includes mercy ministry, oversight of the orphan care ministry, stewardship of the building and property, financial stewardship counseling and training, church finances, and worship service support.
On the first Sunday of the month a deacon’s offering is collected from the congregation and used by the deacons to meet very practical needs in our church and community. If you wish to give to the deacon’s fund please write “deacon’s fund” in the memo.
If you are experiencing difficulty at this time the deacons of Crossroads would love to hear from you. They can be reached by dialing (302) 378-6235 and selecting option #4 from the menu. You can also reach the deacons by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
