Stephen Ministry


Stephen Ministers provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care and support to people experiencing grief, divorce, cancer, job loss, loneliness, disability, relocation, and other life difficulties.


Stephen Leaders match each Stephen Minister to a person in need of care. Each Stephen Minister meets with his or her care receiver for about an hour a week to provide one-to-one, Christ-centered care and support.


Stephen Ministers care for people inside and outside the congregation, including those experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, terminal illness, loneliness, spiritual crisis, hospitalization, relocation, and other life difficulties. Men are matched with men, women with women. Caring relationships last for as long as the person needs this level of care.


Are you or someone you know in need of a Stephen Minister? If so please call the church office and someone will be in touch with you shortly.

Life is a highway, sometimes with smooth sailing to reach your goals or destination. Life is also a highway filled with curves, pitfalls and potholes. The map of life has many twists and turns but know that the great co-pilot, our Lord is with us always. If you need help in finding your way, contact either minister or Bruce Person, Stephens Ministry coordinator. 


I lift my eyes to the hills. From whence does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made
heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:1-2 

Always ask for directions,
Nancy Duracka
