Learn, Grow, and Serve By Becoming a Stephen Minister
Would you like to be part of a ministry that gives people care and support when they need it most – while making a difference in your own life? Consider becoming a Stephen Minister!
Stephen Minsters are members of our congregation who provide one-to-one caring ministry to people experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, hospitalization, and many other life difficulties.
As a Stephen Minister, you will be equipped to provide a very high level of care. After your training, our Stephen Leader will match you with someone in need of care – men are matched with men, women with women. You’ll meet with that person once a week to listen, care, pray, encourage, and reflect Christ’s presence in his or her life. Stephen Ministry is life-changing for both the care receiver and the Stephen Minister. As a bonus, your Stephen Minister skills can enhance relationships in other areas of your life as well.
To learn more about becoming a Stephen Minister come by the table in the Café on February 12, 19, or 26. You can also contact Nancy Riley, Stephen Leader, at 860-250-5946 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to sign up is Monday, February 27th.
Training will start Tuesday March 14, 6:30 – 8:30 PM at Wellspring Church and run through June.
