Stephen Ministry Update

Stephen Ministry

When do we need God’s love most?  Of course, we need that love every second of our lives.  But at times, God’s love is especially precious to us, times when:

·We lose a loved one;

·Life becomes so confusing that we do not know where to turn; or

·Life just becomes meaningless and depression sets in.

At times like these, it is very important to have someone who cares.  Our church has trained parishioners to serve as Stephen Ministers, who offer a ministry of Christian Caring.  If you are interested in the care of a Stephen Minister or are interested in serving as a Stephen Minister, contact Desiree Alford at 615-568-3378.  We are seeking applicants to join this ministry now!
