DEACONS – The Heart of the Church

Mission Statement

The Board of Deacons at Palisades Presbyterian Church in Allied Gardens exists as the hands and heart of the Lord to serve our congregation and community. We shall, as instruments of God’s grace and healing, minister to their spiritual, physical and emotional needs by presence, praying, listening, acting and rejoicing.
