The Office of Deacon is one of sympathy, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ. The Board of Deacons is elected by the congregation of First Presbyterian Church of Strasburg for 3-year terms and has a primary responsibility to provide pastoral care within the congregation. The Board elects its own officers.
Deacons provide congregational care by serving as the on-call Deacon of the Month, by visiting shut-ins, and by making phone calls and sending greetings to stay in touch with those in the congregation who need care or remembrance. They provide meals when needed, place roses celebrating newborns in the sanctuary, deliver the sanctuary flowers to shut-ins, prepare our Communion elements and assist with in-home Communion, sponsor an annual blood drive, maintain the church food cupboard and deliver the items collected to food banks, make available daily devotional material, and honor high school graduates with a reception.

The Board of Trustees of First Presbyterian Church of Strasburg is composed of men and women with various talents who have been elected to serve 3-year terms. Ages of committee members are not important. We are all serving the Lord by caring for the church’s properties. Our meetings are monthly; however, many other hours are spent maintaining the grounds and facilities. Members share their talents by performing tasks that care for the church inside and out. The congregation has an opportunity to share in the work of the committee when we have the annual spring beautification of the church grounds.
