Stephen Ministry Session Overview

Stephen Ministry Session Overview

It is with great thanksgiving to God that we have been blessed with five people who have signed up to be Stephen Ministers for our class of 2019. We have three men and two women who have started training on February 21, 2019.  It is such a joy to see men and women volunteer their time and efforts to get trained as a Stephen Minister and then devote their time to a Care Receiver to give that person good Christian care.  Stephen Ministry is still in need of Care Receiver’s.  I am calling on our congregation to step forth if you need confidential caregiving from our Stephen Ministers.
