STEPHEN MINISTRY

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.

  • Grief
  • Divorce
  • Unemployment
  • Hospitalization
  • Loneliness
  • A Spiritual Crisis
  • Financial Stress
  • Infertility
  • Rehabilitation after an injury
  • Terminal illness
  • Relocation
  • Long-term disability
  • ... and countless other life difficulties.

CELEBRATE RECOVERY

“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.


GRIEF OUTREACH

They do not disperse medication, perform invasive procedures, or provide hands-on nursing.
