Stephen Ministry

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 difficult times. The care you’ll receive is confidential, free, and very helpful.

Stephen Ministers Care!

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who receive special training to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing grief, loneliness, divorce, hospitalization, disability, job loss, and many other life difficulties.

To learn how to become-or receive care from-a Stephen Minister please email Lillian Whipple or call the church office. To receive general information, please visit their web site at

The PBS “Religion and Ethics” news show recently aired an eight-minute feature on Stephen Ministry that vividly describes the life-changing ministry happening in thousands of congregations.

“Being a Stephen Minister is the answer to how to serve God’s people. It has given me skills that I use everyday in my work and in my personal relationships, besides enabling me to be Christ to another as their Stephen Minister.”
