Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. Sometimes we need someone to talk with who is not involved with the situation we are experiencing, and Stephen Ministers are always available to simply listen. There is no judgement involved; just compassion and support. It is completely confidential. If you are interested in learning more about this ministry, please contact Margaret Hutton at [email protected].
Christ’s commandment was to “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12 RSV). Stephen Ministers provide practical and powerful ways to respond to this commandment by developing a team of gifted, trained, and committed caregivers ready to minister to hurting people in the parish.
Consider becoming a Stephen Minister if you are a good listener and a compassionate person. To learn more, go to stephenministries.org.
