Stephen Ministries

Stephen Ministries meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM.

Stephen Ministries draws its name from St. Stephen, who was chosen to provide caring ministry to those in need. Since the days of the Apostles, caring ministry has been at the heart of all we do as Stephen Ministers in the Christian community (170 denominations in 26 countries).

Also referred to as the “after people,” Stephen Ministers are trained to provide one-on-one distinctively Christian care to people experiencing difficult times “after” the onset of grief, divorce, hospitalization, financial crisis, terminal illness, and many other life-changing situations which may occur.

A Stephen Minister typically serves one care receiver at a time and meets with that person for an hour, once a week.  These caregivers provide confidential emotional and spiritual support to people who are hurting.  You don’t have to be alone.  Let us share the burden and walk this journey with you. To get started, or for more information, contact the church office at 717-652-6700.
