Stephen Ministry

The Stephen Ministry is a confidential, lay-caring multi denominational ministry grounded in Jesus' command to love one another. Those who are hurting receive love and support through one-to-one caring relationships. The ministry is named after Stephen, one of the first deacons in the early Christian church, commissioned by the apostles to care for the needs of people in the Christian community.

Everyone goes through difficult times. Having someone to care, to listen, and to share God's love can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness that you may be experiencing. We currently have 11 active Stephen Ministers trained in Christian caregiving. For more information please contact our church office or the Stephen Ministry website.
