CCPC Board of Deacons
Our Deacons provide care to members and friends at times of need. Deacons make pastoral visits, provide meals, flowers and communion. They watch over those in hospitals, care facilities and with long-term illnesses. They also send cards and help families at the time of birth and at the time of death. If you feel called to be a deacon, please contact Pastor Ellen or fill out the signup form below.
You can help us!
The Pastors and Deacons of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church want to become more aware of the needs of our congregation. If you or someone you know in the congregation has a special need (such as an extended illness, a hospitalization or a death in the family), you can help by contacting us by email.
Alzheimer's Caregiver Support
We meet monthly to support and care for those whose loved ones have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's. We share techniques and coping skills as well as encouraging one another. We are associated with the Alzheimer's Association of North Texas. Third Wednesdays, 6:30-8:30p. Text or call Betty Langfitt for more information at 214.906.6158.
North Star AA Group
Alcoholics Anonymous is an international mutual aid fellowship of alcoholics dedicated to abstinence-based recovery from alcoholism through its spiritually-inclined Twelve Step program. Following its Twelve Traditions, AA is non-professional, non-denominational, as well as apolitical and unaffiliated.
Weekly meetings on Tuesday nights. For more information call Erik P. at 469-231-6340 or send him an email.
At CCPC, our deacons and grief care ministry work together to care for those who have lost loved ones. Our intent is to walk alongside as needed. If you are grieving and need a companion or someone to talk to, email Pastor Ellen.
Some remembrance services families have found helpful are:
All Saints' Roll Call and Remembrance Luncheon, first Sunday in November
This is a meaningful time shared with your family of faith as we remember those loved ones who have died in the last year.
Remembrance Tree, Advent and Christmastide, in the Columbarium
We hang an ornament on the tree, remembering our loved ones at Christmas. You may bring a special ornament that holds meaning for you, or hang one provided.
Longest Night Remembrance Service, 6:00 pm, Sanctuary, December 21 each year
This service of hope reminds us of the hope of the dawning of Christ as the days begin to lengthens and the darkness lessens.
Faith and Grief
We partner with Faith and Grief ministry, which offers monthly luncheons to remember your loved one in the presence of a faith group, as well as grief workshops, an 8-week experience with one another to come as you are in your grief, and to "walk" your loved one into the light of the Divine.
