Deacons

The Deacons are dedicated to the spiritually of Lincoln, its ministries and ministerial staff support. The men and women of the Deacon board are a vital and a valuable Church organization.

The Deacon’s mission is to make ourselves available to help with many Church matters. This includes involvement with funerals, Youth Group’s ventures, church outings and church security. Deacons are also active in the choir, as ushers, technology support staff, members of Board of Trustees, Lincoln Life Center Board, Mentoring Group, baptisms and other Church organizations.

We continue to set up and serve communion on the first Sunday of each month, visit the sick and shut in, assist the Pastor and ministerial staff, support of all Church ministries and in general, supporting the spiritual needs of the Church and the Pastor.

Stewardship

The Mission of the Stewardship Commission is to create a culture of giving that encourages people to grow in faith as they joyfully expand their relationship with God and develop a lifestyle of generosity of their finances, time and talent.

The Commission works in conjunction with the Pastoral Staff and the Trustee Board to implement an effective, year round program where members and friends commit to cheerful and consistent giving of their financial resources, their time and their talent to support the mission of the church.

The Stewardship Commission is dedicated to presenting information on financial literacy to all age groups of the Lincoln family.  To this end, financial workshops of varying subject matter and interests are presented throughout the year.

Successful, well received workshops discussing “Teen Finance”, “How To Protect Your Credit Information and Effective Ways To Manage Your Personal Assets”, “Maximizing Assets For Ministry”, “Charitable Gift Annuities” and “Wealth Planning and Investment Management” presents a sample of the thought provoking and stimulating experiences the Stewardship Commission provides for the Lincoln family and the community.

The theme adopted for the 2016 – 2017 Stewardship Campaign was THE JOY of GENEROSITY.  The campaign was held during the month of September 2016 and will continue through this year and next to remind the congregation that within the Joy of Generosity we are reminded that there is a joy in receiving God’s Blessings, a Joy in managing God’s Blessings and most importantly there is joy in sharing God’s Blessings!
