July 25th Ordination of Deaconess Cora Rose

Livestream begins on July 25th, 2021

Because all of its baptized members share in Christ’s ministry of love and service, the church equips and supports them for their ministries in the world. Within this context of ministry, the church calls some of its baptized members for specific ministries. The ministry of word and service has New Testament roots in the ministry of diakonia: Stephen, Philip, and five others oversee the distribution of food within the church in Jerusalem; Phoebe and Priscilla are identified with diakonia in Paul’s letters. Although this ministry has taken different forms throughout the church’s history, its emphasis has been this: Those called to the ministry of word and service speak God’s word to God’s world, and in turn they speak also for the needs of God’s world to the church; they give leadership in the church’s mission to witness to God’s love through both words and actions. In the service of Ordination to the Ministry of Word and Service, the church entrusts this ministry to those who have accepted the church’s call and sends them into this ministry.
