CCA Deacons

​"He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." Micah 6:8

Christ Church Deacons demonstrate the love of Christ through the ministry of mercy.  To do this, the Deacons will:

  • equip and empower CCA’s congregation to meet their own material needs and mend broken relationships with themselves, others, and God;

  • build meaningful and lasting relationships with those who approach the Diaconate for assistance; 

  • and encourage members of the congregation to have compassion for, and invest in, those who have current and/or ongoing material needs.  

The Deacons accomplish this mission by:

  • Coming alongside members and visitors to CCA to help them walk through challenging times.

  • Supporting those with material needs through administering the church Deacon’s Fund. This fund is most often used to help those in our congregation, but also provides opportunities to help those in the local community.

  • Providing oversight of the Arlington Turkey Trot.
