Stephen Ministers provide high-quality, confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people experiencing a variety of life’s challenges – grief, divorce, cancer, financial difficulties, hospitalization, chronic illness, job loss, disabilities, loneliness, a spiritual crisis, or other life struggles. In addition to caring for members of our congregation, Stephen Ministers also provide care to nonmembers, reaching out to people in our community facing difficulties in their lives.
Do you, or is someone you know, in need of a Stephen Minister?
