Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus' command to care for those who are hurting. Stephen Ministers are lay people who have received at least 50 hours of training in how to provide distinctively Christian care with strict confidentiality. This ministry helps meet the needs of individuals who are: hospitalized, terminally ill, bereaved, in a job crisis, homebound, disabled, or in a spiritual crisis. Consider allowing a Stephen Minister to walk with you on your journey to wholeness. For more information, check out our Stephen Ministry page or contact Rev. Erma Pregler.
Grief Support Group
Our Grief Support Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm in the adult wing (room 503). The group is led by Rose Ann Marshall, a trained Stephen Minister, who understands first-hand about grief recovery. Newcomers and guests from the community are welcome to attend. Regardless of how long ago or how recent the loss of a loved one, being in a grief support group is important to moving forward in life. This group is founded upon confidentiality, integrity and consistency. Contact Rev. Erma Pregler for more information.
Special Angels are adults and youth who will attend Sunday school with children or youth who need additional help. The most common types of learning disorders that we will see are Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome. Any student who needs help in the classroom can have a special angel even those without significant learning disabilities. The Children, Extreme Team, and Youth Ministers will evaluate every student who might benefit from a special angel and who is referred to them from the teachers or parents. For more information see our Special Angels page or contact Jean Stout.
