Our Stephen Ministry provides encouragement and support to those who are experiencing adversity.  This ministry, has been a program of our church since 1994.  Stephen Ministers are trained lay people who provide distinctively Christian, one-on-one care to those in need, and serve people within our congregation, as well as from the community.


The Stephen Minister brings a Christ-centered attitude and spirit to the caring relationship, which are kept strictly confidential.  He or she provides Christian friendship and a compassionate ear to those who are suffering.  If you are having a difficult time coping with an illness, financial stress, a change in living arrangements, retirement or any other life change which might be hard to manage, please give us a call to find out more.  Our Stephen Ministers are here to serve you with encouragement, support and Christian love.
