Stephen Ministers provide emotional and spiritual support and care to people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, terminal illness, unemployment, chronic illness, relocation or loneliness.
They are among us!
Finding new Stephen Ministers is the next step for our Stephen Ministry program. We are praying for the individuals God is calling to serve as caregivers. Please include this need in your prayers. God answers our prayers because he is faithful. For more information about Stephen Ministry, contact Luann Weber or Carolyn Taylor.
Stephen Ministry- What is it all about?
Stephen Ministers are there:
…after the phone call you hoped you’d never get.
…after the divorce papers are served and the bottom falls out of your life.
…after the funeral, when everyone has left and the emotions you’ve held at bay come crashing in on you.
…after the nursing home director shakes your hand and says, “Welcome to your new home.”
…after the doctor says, “I’m sorry, but there’s nothing more we can do.”
…after the last child honks the horn, waves, and drives away–and the house suddenly seems empty.
…after the baby arrives, demanding more of you than you ever dreamed possible.
…after you find a pink slip with your final paycheck.
Stephen Ministers are the “After People.” They are ready to come alongside you, or your friends, neighbors, coworkers, or relatives, and provide comfort and support for as long after as needed.
