Are you in need of..
Stephen Ministry offers care, support and encouragement to people whose lives have been disrupted by divorce, death, grief, loss of a job, retirement changes, health problems, loneliness, discouragement, childbirth, questions about God and faith, and so forth. It trains and supervises lay caregivers to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people in and around our church. Men meet with men and women meet with women.
Stephen Ministers work alongside our pastors to care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness. If you have gifts for caring, encouragement, and listening, please begin to prayerfully consider whether you might want to be part of this exciting ministry. If you think you might be interested, talk with one of our Stephen Ministry Leaders: Julie Edwards or Rod Slaton.
