– Isaiah 26:4 –
We all experience difficulties in life, but there’s no need to carry your burden alone. Caring Stephen Ministers from our congregation are specially trained to help those experiencing life’s difficulties such as:
Our Stephen Ministry offers one-on-one Christian-based care and support to both congregation members and nonmembers. Those in need are partnered with their own Stephen Minister and typically meet once a week for about an hour. The Stephen Minister listens with care, attentiveness, respect and a nonjudgmental attitude. These caring relationships last as long as the need persists —perhaps only a month or two in the case of someone who is dealing with a temporary setback, or possibly a year or more when someone is going through a more significant crisis or transition.
Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remains strictly confidential.
To learn more about our Stephen Ministry program and how it works, or to make a confidential request to receive help from a Stephen Minister, send a message to Stephen Leaders Lois Honigfeld or Jim Wood.
