Stephen Ministers:  Are you going through a difficult time?

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are facing a crisis or going through tough times.  We provide one-on-one Christian care to those who are experiencing grief, loneliness, divorce, hospitalization, disability, job loss, and many other life difficulties.  The care you receive is confidential and free.

 

Frequently, people ask, “Can you tell me exactly what a Stephen Minister is?” We like to explain that Stephen Ministers are “After People.”

Stephen Ministers are there…
...after you’ve washed and returned the last casserole dish.
...after the divorce papers have been served and the bottom falls out of your life.
...after the last child honks the horn, waves and drives away—and the house suddenly seems incredibly empty.
...after you’ve arrived home from the funeral service and the emotions you’ve held at bay come crashing in on you.
...after the door slams shut—for the very last time.
...after the phone call you’d always hoped you’d never get.
...after you realize the hands on the gold watch you received at your retirement party move more slowly than you ever imagined.
...after the nursing home director shakes your hand and says, “Welcome to your new home.”
...after the gavel goes down, the handcuffs go on, and your loved one is led away.
...after the baby arrives, putting more demands on you than you ever dreamed possible.
...after you find the pink slip inserted into what is your final paycheck.
...after your family and friends have heard your story one too many times, but you still need to talk about it.
 
Stephen Ministers are ready to come alongside you—or your friends, neighbors, co-workers or relatives—and provide comfort and support for as long as “after” as they are needed. 
 

 

We are always available to anyone who needs a caring, listening ear to help them through difficult times.
