Diaconate Board

Diaconate Board is responsible for and oversees the sanctuary and worship services of the Church as prescribed in the By-Laws of Pilgrim Congregation Church. The duties of the Diaconate Board are facilitated by committees within the Board. The Board currently consists of 15 Church members, which make up these committees. The operating funds for the Diaconate Board are obtained solely from the special collections at each communion.

The routine duties of this Board include: serving communion; staffing ushers, greeters and acolytes for the church services; maintaining pulpit and alter hangings; maintaining sanctuary supplies and scholarship and loan funds; remembrance and visitation of home bound members; hosting coffee hours; and facilitating communications between Church Boards through Diaconate representation at Church Council meetings.
