Love One Another As I Have Loved You…
In John 15:12, Jesus says, “‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.'”
Loving and caring for one another is not just the pastor’s job–it’s something Jesus calls us all to do! Stephen Ministers are lay people with special gifts for caring who have received many hours of training focused on providing Christian love and care to those who most need it.
Christ Caring for People through People – that’s the motto of Stephen Ministry. The Stephen Minister’s role is to bring God’s love into the lives of people who are going through a difficult time or experiencing a crisis. A Stephen Minister will listen to you, care for you, support and encourage you, and pray with and for you. In the midst of this confidential, one-to-one, caring relationship, God’s healing love comes pouring through. If you or someone you know is facing a crisis–large or small– the caring presence of a Stephen Minister might help.
If you–or someone you know–are going through a difficult time, contact one of our pastors. You’ll be matched with a Stephen Minister who can provide focused, confidential, one-to-one Christian care and help you experience the healing power of Christ’s love in your life.
