The Deaconesses serve as the heart of Canby Alliance with the practical ministry of being available in times of difficulty and times of celebration. They serve our church with care and hospitality providing meals, delivering cards and flowers, managing the kitchen, laundering tablecloths and towels and preparing communion. In 2021, as Canby Alliance began to resume in-person activities, communion was once again provided monthly for Sunday morning service. Memorial Services were hosted for Ken Thornton, Mae Goosen, Bill Knopp, Harry Lee Kwai and David Longworth. New CAC Kitchen aprons were also ordered and embroidered with CAC. Flowers and cards were delivered to around 50 people and approximately 40 meals were delivered.
The women who serve on the Deaconesses and also those who assist when extra help is needed are such a beautiful expression of being the hands and feet of Jesus in very real ways. We are grateful to be able to serve.
