Find us on










We listen. We care.  We are stay in communication with our flocks, celebrating joys as well as providing support in distressing times. Deacons minister to those who are in need; to the sick, lonely,  and any who may be in distress.  Our aim is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ, to demonstrate the Christian role of compassion within a congregation. 

FlocksWithin St. Andrews, the church is divided into groups or flocks. Deacons maintain contact with their flock by email, cards, phone calls and home visits; also, by visits to those who are in rehabilitation centers and home-bound by illness or great age. To find out who your deacon is, contact the Church Office at (805) 967-6327.

DutiesThe deacons assist the pastors in the preparation and service of Communion.  Deacons offer special support for Memorial Services by providing floral arrangements and by hosting a reception after the memorial service and providing food and beverages for the reception. 
Special Events, Special Programs Throughout the church year the deacons host several special events such as the annual Gathering of Flocks, Christmas and Easter Coffee Hours, the Prayer Chain.  Care Bag lunches are provided by Deacons for community homeless and food insecure individuals and families.  Deacons provide the varied Care Notes for members to take home. These are contemporary booklets offering guidance and support for those who are hurting or perhaps dealing with intensely difficult emotional circumstances.


Become Involved

If this is a type of ministry that interests you as a member of our congregation, we welcome your involvement. Contact the pastor to discuss becoming a deacon.  A deacon’s term is for three years.

Deacons rely on the Deacon Fund to carry them through the call to service; donations are always appreciated and special envelopes for Deacon Fund Donations are located in the church Narthex (lobby).
