Stephen Ministry was named in honor of Stephen, one of the first lay people in the early church called to help those in need. Acts 6:8, the apostles commissioned Stephen and a few others to provide caring ministry for the church when needs for care arose beyond what the apostles were able to meet. It is a one-on-one ministry for individuals who are going through life’s difficult seasons. If you or someone you know has lost a loved one, gone through a divorce, is suffering with illness of self or a loved one, has lost a job, has a new empty nest, has problems with a family member, or other major life events, explore what Stephen Ministry has to offer. Having your own confidential person to talk with who is objective and able to give a listening ear can help so much! Stephen Ministers listen and care. They also pray with you and for you. If you need someone to listen and care, please contact one of the names below to be matched with the Stephen Minister that is right for you.
Grief Share is designed to help people with the deep hurt that comes from losing someone close to you. It encourages individuals on their journey from mourning back to joy. If you or someone you know has suffered a loss of a loved one, we are here to help. Everyone grieves differently, and there is no right or wrong way. There is no pressure to attend every session. Each session will cover a different topic, but all topics are open at each session, and questions are welcome. All conversations are confidential. Come and share your story, or just listen; we want you to feel comfortable. Your grief is not the same as anyone else’s, but all grief is normal. Let us walk with you, down your unique path, in your own time.
For more information, please contact Susan Rowe at 770-339-9801 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Maureen Southerland, email@example.com, or Michael Ackerman, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next group will be starting on Sunday, February 10, 2019, at 4pm in room #311.
