Stephen ministry offers...
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. This ministry 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 support...
Stephen Ministers support people who for the most part have their basic coping skills intact, their thinking in order and their emotions under control. These care receivers need someone to walk beside them, to encourage them, to pray with them and for them, and to bear their burdens with them. The Stephen Minister offers his or her support through attentive, active listening and a caring presence.
