Why Stephen Ministry?

Stephen Ministers Comfort

We have many needs for care in our congregation and community:  people experiencing divorce, grief, a terminal illness, loss of a job, relocation, an empty nest, retirement, hospitalization, loneliness, and many other stresses or challenges. Often people with needs suffer silently or do not request or receive the level of care they really need.  With only two full-time pastors for our congregation of 600 adult  members and regular attenders, you can quickly see why it would be impossible for our pastors to meet every single need of every person. Stephen Ministry expands the care that we can offer by equipping and organizing our people to provide Christ-centered care.
