MINISTRY TO MEMBERS
THE ROLES OF DEACONS AND SUNDAY SCHOOL
At Indian Springs Baptist Church, our
ministry emphasis defines the traditional role of Deacons
and recognizes the practical reality of the role of the
Sunday School Class in ministering to church members.
In a very real sense, our Adult
Sunday School Classes minister to class members with
practical, emotional and spiritual support in times of need,
grief and other significant life events.
Most of the time, members who have needs do not think to let
their Deacon know what is happening. Consequently, the Deacon
discovers the need after it is too late to help.
Traditionally, each Deacon was assigned
about 20 families and conversely each family has one Deacon
assigned to them. In our present
emphasis, each family would have all Deacons assigned to
provide ministry, as it is needed.
You may ask, "Who
is my Deacon?"
The answer is simply "All the active Deacons."
Each week, two Deacons are assigned
"Deacon On Call" responsibilities and will be expected to
provide needed ministry during that week. The Deacon on Call
duties are given below. Of course, families
should feel free to call upon any Deacon (at any time) in our
church for help as they have needs. The Deacons On Call
are identified in the worship service Bulletin each week.
