One of the Church’s first deacons was Stephen and six other men, chosen by the disciples. They focused on helping the poor, so that the disciples could devote themselves to “the Word of God and prayer.”
A church could make it easy for those who view online church to request prayer. That could be texting a certain phone number. Or you can refer them to a webpage where they can watch a promotional video for each of it prayer team members, so people can choose to pray with who they want. Similar could be done for each home group coordinator , whether online groups (eg. for parents) or socially-distant in-person groups.
Now is a time like no other for church deacons to revert to their original role. As you plan community outreach and church care, what are your deacons suggesting? And how is that reflected on your social media?
