"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ" -Galatians 6:2!

There are times when every one of us experiences difficulties

  • Loss of loved one
  • Hospitalization
  • Spiritual Crisis
  • Divorce

  • Job Loss
  • Disability
  • Loneliness
  • Cancer

  • Imprisonment
  • Infertility
  • Discouragement
  • Other challenges

God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone. That's why God has brought us together as a congregation - and why we have Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who have received 50 hours fo training to minster to people experiencing a crisis or going through a difficult time in life.

Every week, a Stephen Minister will meet with you -- privately and confidentially -- to listen, care, encourage, support, and reflect Christ's presence in your life.

If you'd like to learn more about Stephen Ministry for yourself or someone else (inside or outside our congregation), contact a pastor or Stephen Leader.
