Elders Deacons

crosses made from the ladder of the original churchElders Deacons make up the leadership of Laguna Presbyterian Church forming what is called, Session.

The Church’s ordered ministries described in the New Testament and maintained by this church are deacons and presbyters (teaching elders and ruling elders). Ordered ministries are gifts to the church to order its life so that the ministry of the whole people of God may flourish. – G-2.0102 Book of Order PCUSA, Ordered Ministries

Deacons – Ministry of compassion and service

Deacons serve as Christ’s hands and feet in our own community as they nurture members of the congregation with friendship and compassion. Our parish deacons serve assigned geographic areas of our membership, providing ongoing care and nurture through frequent contact, hospital visitation, new member integration, and memorial service hospitality. Contact the church office if you do not know who your deacon is; we want to help you make this connection.
