Rake-N-Run 

The premise is simple.  As a youth group, we show up. We rake the leaves in yards of persons who might not be able to do so, or of those who haven’t been able to rake  yet. Then we disappear leaving behind only a RAKE & RUN sign. If you want your yard raked or you know of anyone who would like to have their yard raked, please contact the church office. We’ll will plan to rake (& run) between 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on      Saturday, November 16th.

 STEPHEN MINISTRY

Stephen ministry is a nondenominational confidential ministry of trained Christian care givers. Their role is to LISTEN and CARE- not counsel of advise. Stephen Ministers are assigned only to  people who agree to receive the care of a Stephen Minister.  They minister to people in specific situations such as divorce, terminal illness, grief, aging, loneliness, single parenting, etc. Stephen Ministers minister to only one care receiver at a time and usually meets with that person for one hour per week.  They are trained to recognize when a care receiver’s needs go beyond the care of a Stephen Minister and can refer the Care Receiver for additional care. People interested in these services need not be a member of a church.

For more information on becoming a Stephen Minister or requesting services from a Stephen Minister please contact Gwen Scarth,  at gwenyth.allen@gmail.com or at 706-258-8757 or John VanNamen at vannamenjohn@ gmail.com or at 219-670-3057.
