Deacons meeting is 1st Sunday of the month
But let a man examine himself,
and so let him eat of that bread,
and drink of that cup.
1 Corinthians 11:28 (KJV)
According to the Chruch of the Brethren Offical Web Site:
"Deacon ministry is a vital and significant expression of our caregiving ministries to individuals and families. The 1997 Annual Conference statement, “Deacon Ministry in the Church of the Brethren,” states the vision for a deacon ministry in the church as follows:
“Deacons are called to be dedicated caregivers who use their spiritual gifts in a shared ministry of concern for the total well-being of God’s people. Deacons are to be Christ-like, welcoming, nurturing, reconciling, sensitive to the presence of God’s spirit in their lives and in the lives of others, witnessing for Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord within and beyond the Body of Christ, the church.”
The goal of the Deacon Ministry is to provide encouragement, support, and resources to deacons and caregivers of all sorts in the Church of the Brethren’s congregations and District Offices."
One of the first calls of Deacons may be found in the following verses.
King James Version (KJV)
6 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.
2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
