Board of Deacons' Teams

Connection- This team works with staff to welcome and follow up with visitors to worship and congregational events. The team also works to create stronger bonds of connection and relationships at ORPC. “Connection” events during the year include a night at a Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball game, Trunk or Treat co-hosted with youth ministry and other events as needed.


Care– This team serves church members experiencing a life challenge or crisis and serves the entire congregation by providing health-related education workshops.  Specific care events include sending cards to the sick, grieving, and Veterans on Veterans Day. On All Saints Sunday, this team delivers flowers to ORPC members who have experienced a death in their family in the past year. Deacons also visit church members as needed.
