As a church family, we support one another in times of joy and sorrow. We develop deep and lasting friendships through our joint commitment to God.
Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2)
When was the last time someone really listened to you? We’re talking about the undistracted, full-attention kind of listening. That’s one of the ways Stephen Ministers care for others. Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in churches like ours that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers- called Stephen Ministers- to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education. If you’re interested in serving as a Stephen Minister or receiving care in this way, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Prayer Shawl ministry has been able to give hundreds of prayer shawls to many people over the years, as needs and prayer have evolved. The group meets every Wednesday evening in the Lounge for fellowship, prayer and, of course, knitting. Please join us, we’ll even teach you to knit!
Annually, our choir and others go Christmas caroling! The group visits homes and senior care facilities, spreading cheer at every stop. Each visit is special and it is such a joy to join voices with those who are unable to get out, together singing favorite Christmas carols and bringing a smile to all during the Christmas season.
