First Presbyterian Church has been part of the Stephen Ministry for over 30 years. Our congregation’s Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian Care to individuals in our congregation and community or are experiencing difficulties in their lives.
Stephen Ministers care for people facing tough times. We all experience challenges in life; times when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend. Stephen Ministers are ready to provide emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty such as–
Loss of a lived one
Divorce or separation
Loneliness or discouragement
Unemployment or job crisis
A terminal illness
Birth, Adoption, miscarriage, or infertility
A chronic illness
Recovery after an accident or disaster
And many more
Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. The Identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remain private.
