Stephen Ministry

Our congregation’s Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. They meet on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual support. Men are paired with men; women with women. Those who are bereaved, hospitalized, terminally ill, separated, divorced, unemployed, relocating, or facing a crisis or life change are compassionately cared for and encouraged during this challenge in life.
