SUNDAYS

STEPHEN MINISTRY

Stephen Ministry is a lay caregiving ministry that supplements pastoral care. Volunteers participate in a 50-hour training then go on to provide one-on-one care for individuals who request support during a challenge time in their lives. The confidential care-giver and care-receiver relationship, usually conducted by weekly visits, may continue for months or years.
