Care & Support

Prayer

 

We believe prayer changes lives. 


To many, prayer seems complicated but it’s simply talking. Spending time in prayer is the best way to develop and grow our relationship with God. Count your minutes spent daily in one or more prayer disciplines. See where you are now, set a goal, and see how God blesses your increased time with Him.

Thank you for sharing and letting us pray for you.

Support Ministries

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry offers a one-on-one caring ministry by trained members of our congregation. It is an extension of pastoral care for those experiencing difficult life circumstances. God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone.  Every week, a Stephen Minister will meet with you privately and confidentially to listen, care, encourage, support and reflect Christ’s presence in your life.

To learn more about Stephen Ministry, visit www.stephenministries.org

Contact: Rosemarie Hughes
Women’s Referrals: Alice Parrish
Men’s Referrals: Dave Moore


Continuing Education Sessions
2nd & 4th Tuesdays, 6:30 – 7:15pm, Rm S201

Come meet our Stephen Ministers and find out more about the ministry. If you feel that you are being called to join this ministry, you are especially invited to be present. All are welcome!

SAINT Ministry

S.A.I.N.T. (Senior Adults In Need Team) is a one-on-one contact and outreach ministry dedicated to our frail, elderly, home-bound residents of assisted living and nursing homes.  This is a concrete expression of the “hands and feet” of Jesus, offering care that allows volunteers to use their interest, gifts, and available time.  Our goal is for all of our S.A.I.N.T.s to be connected to a team of two or three adults who offer consistent (weekly or monthly) encouragement through engaging relationships.

Opportunities for building engaging relationships include:
  • Visitation
  • Sending notes/cards
  • Prayer

Visitation volunteers are required to have training and a background check before being “sent out."

  • Spiritually enriching intergenerational activities 
  • Educational opportunities
  • Church missional events to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus
