stephen ministryStephen Ministries is coming to FUMC at the end of November. The ministry is named for Stephen who was a man of God full of faith and the Holy Spirit. This Ministry, while new to FUMC, has been around since 1975.

The purpose is to provide one-to-one Christian care for our congregation as difficult life situations present. Stephen Ministry is not counseling but it is distinctively Christian Care. Stephen Ministers listen, are present, and journey with those experiencing difficult times. Those requesting care and the care they receive is completely confidential and private. Stephen Ministers go through extensive training, supervision and continuing education so that the best possible care can be offered to someone in need. More information will follow in the monthly newsletter and future e-Enlighteners about Stephen Ministries. You can also email This email address is being protected from spambots.
