Stephen Ministry
Stephen Ministry is a ministry of lay persons within our congregation that supplement our pastoral staff. Stephen Ministers provide one to one Christian care giving and support to persons ex-periencing difficulties in everyday life situations. Stephen Ministers undergo a course of training that teaches the use of listening skills and Christian faith to help make God’s love come alive for those experiencing difficulties.

Stephen Ministers are assigned a care receiver in strict confidence, and this assignment may be from one to two years or less. Stephen Ministers meet twice monthly for continuing education, prayer and peer supervision. Stephen Min-isters are called upon to visit our hospitalized members weekly on Saturday or Sunday.

There are various ways that members of the congregation provide health related information and services for members of the congregation. This includes:
