Stephen Ministers-Providing Help, Hope, and Healing

What do you do when…

…the divorce papers have been served and the bottom falls out of your life. …the last child honks the horn and drives away—and the house suddenly seems incredibly empty. …you arrive home following the funeral service and the emotions you’ve held at bay come crashing in on you. …the relationship has ended but the wounds are still bleeding and painful. …the doctors have said, “There’s nothing more we can do.” …the door has slammed shut for the very last time. …the phone call you dreaded most happened. …you realized the hands on the gold watch you received at your retirement party move more slowly than you ever imagined. …the nursing home director shakes your hand and says, “Welcome to your new home.” …the gavel goes down, the handcuffs go on, and your loved one is led away. …the baby has arrived, putting more demands on you than you ever dreamed possible. …you find the pink slip inserted with what is now your final paycheck. …your loved one cannot remember who you are. …your life is in transition and you feel overwhelmed with choices and responsibilities.

These things happen in our lives, and we all need people to help us through the difficult times.  People who will keep listening even when the other friends are tired of talking about it.  People who listen without judgment and walk with you through a difficult time.  An encourager who will lift us up in prayer.

Stephen Ministers are the people to turn to for this type of loving support.

On Sunday, July 8th, we will be commissioning our newest members of the Stephen Ministry team:

Shana Nagel

Theresa Theroux

Tracy Welch

 

Please join us as we pray for the success of their ministry.
