Deacon’s will hold a “Sock Sunday” encouraging members to bring pairs of socks, all sizes from infants, children, men & women’s, on the 28th for the blessing box. There will be a basket in the back of the Sanctuary for you to place your donations of socks.

The Deacon’s help with the Moberly School district for Resources for Home to School.  If you would like to donate items to help those students that may need assistance, some of the items they can use are School supplies for the winter.  A lot of the children walk to school and get their feet, clothing etc. wet. So they could really use gently used clothing, coats, gloves & shoes, socks, hygiene items, undergarments, so if they need to change into dry clothing, there will be some available. There is a basket in the hall for donations.

Safe Passage is in need of make-up, hair products, hair clippers, kitchen trash bags, paper towels, liquid dish soap, baby shampoo and wash, spray Lysol, liquid dish soap and women’s deodorant.

Coyote Hill Foster Care Services is continuing to collect school supplies for foster children.  If you would like to donate school supplies, i.e.: pencils, notebooks, erasers, rulers, scissors, backpack, etc… you can leave them at the church, and a Deacon will deliver the supplies to them. 

Coyote Hill would like to share how you can get involved in the foster care community, either by becoming a foster parent, respite provider, or volunteer. If you would like to know more about what Coyote Hill is doing locally, right here in Randolph County!

Coates Street Presbyterian Church Board of Deacon’s

The Deacons’ Ministry is divided into several areas:

Transportation Those willing to drive church members to a doctor’s visit or medical procedure are recruited and names made available. 

Worship Support Each Deacon serves two months as usher and head usher at our Sunday morning service.  The 1st Sunday of the month, Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve, the Deacon’s prepare and set up for the Lord’s Supper.

Community Donations Deacons receive all cash contributions the first Sunday of the month cash, along with any checks (memo for Deacons), or money in a Deacon offering envelope.  The Deacons prayerfully decide how to distribute those funds.  Currently, over $7000 annually goes to our community: Christos Center Food, Community Child Care & Learning Center, Safe Passage, Moberly Home to School Program, Randolph County Ministerial Alliance, Rooted 242, Coyote Hill of Moberly, and other needs the Board votes on.

The Deacon’s meet on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:00 PM.
