Prayer and Support

As Christians together, we promise to care for one another. We do that primarily by praying for one another. Prayer concerns can be shared on prayer cards during the worship service and added to the email prayer chain by contacting the church office.

Our pastor is also available for home and hospital visits, and our congregation members care for one another as they build relationships in small groups and classes.

For those with deeper needs, we offer Stephen Ministry, which is a system of training and organizing lay persons for caring ministry in and around our congregation.  Stephen Ministry enables members of our congregation to serve one another as caring Christian friends.

Stephen Ministers are committed Christian people who…

  •  express God’s care through their lives to others

  •  receive 50 hours of initial training in caring ministry skills and concepts

  •  visit another person regularly and dependably, offering Christian support and care

  • participate in regular support and supervision under the guidance of trained Stephen Leaders

  • are committed to preserving the confidential nature of the caring relationship

  • receive continuing education and skill building throughout their years of service.

Anyone interested in receiving one-on-one care or training to serve as a Stephen Minister may contact the church office or our Stephen Minister coordinator Maja Nipper
