The Diaconate Mercy Committee is a ministry that reaches out to people in the Hixson Presbyterian Church congregation and beyond who are in crisis or in challenging circumstances and offers help in assessing their needs and working together to find solutions. Our purpose is to show God's love and mercy by trying to help people out of difficult circumstances. If you would like Diaconate assistance please follow one of the paths below.
Members or Regular Attenders
The Mercy Committee will try to assist you as needs are identified and as resources are available. If you are facing financial, medical, or other issues that are beyond what you can handle please fill out a Diaconate Assistance Request form (linked below) and e-mail it to HeatherW@HixsonPres.org or drop the request by the church office. A Deacon will evaluate the issue and advise you as to how we might be able to help and suggest a plan to move forward.
Use the Public Services Helpline – call 211 on your phone. The United Way’s 211 program (a United way of Greater Chattanooga service) is an information and referral service where you can get help just by dialing 211. Whether it’s a problem finding quality, affordable childcare or overcoming a family crisis, 211 is there to connect people to human services that can meet their needs. There are some areas where 211 is not yet available. Residents in these areas may dial: 423-265-8000 or 1-866-3035.
If the 211 services are not able to help you please fill out a (linked below) form and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop the request by the church office. A Deacon will hevaluate the issue and advise you as to how we might be able to help and suggest a plan to move forward.
