What exactly is a Stephen Minister?
Stephen Ministers are the “After People.” They are ready to come alongside you and provide comfort and support for as long as needed after the last child honks the horn, waves, and drives away—and the house suddenly seems empty. Contact Kirk or Helga.
“Come as You Are!” What a wonderful invitation from our Lord Jesus Christ through Celebrate Recovery®. Thousands of people around the country have been helped to overcome hurts, hang-ups, habits, and addictions through God’s healing grace. We are all in need of healing, and Celebrate Recovery can help us to find victory over things that plague us. Disruptive behaviors, anger, co-dependency, eating disorders, grief, financial instability, and addictions are some of the things keeping us from forgiveness and living as disciples in the will of God. So, “Come as You Are” and experience Celebrate Recovery. Dinner and childcare are provided.
WHEN: Tuesdays, 6-8:15pm
WHERE: Fellowship Hall
CONTACT: Email Office to get contact phone numbers.

Parish nursing is a ministry to assist and enable our congregation and community to live full, abundant, and healthy lives. Our registered nurses promote wellness, advocate personal responsibility, serve as liaison with community resources, and integrate faith and health. They organize CPR classes and blood donation. They do not disperse medication, perform invasive procedures, or provide hands-on nursing.

Bring a craft you want to work on and maybe you will have the opportunity to make progress on it. Some of us have finished several projects, just by having dedicated time to craft. We eat lunch together at noon. We have so much fun – working on our crafts, being together and praying too. Hope you can join us! Any questions, please ask Beth Faulkner.
