Everyone experiences storms in life - a difficult illness, the loss of a loved one, a divorce, the loss of a job. When these storms happen, they are much easier to navigate with support from a compassionate friend who has a good listening ear. Stephen Ministers are people who help care for others caught up in the storms of life. Perhaps you are in need of the caring, confidential, Christian relationship of a Stephen Minister.Stephen Ministers are people in our congregation who have the gift of a compassionate heart. They are trained and willing to help you through a crisis by listening attentively as you sort through difficult life events. What you say to them is held in complete confidence. You would meet with your Stephen Minister about once a week for an hour to talk about what is happening in your life. There is no charge. This is purely a ministry of Christian caring.If you would like a Stephen Minister or would like to become one, please contact Sharon Guyer: .
