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.

Now that the church mortgage has been paid off, a new designated fund has been set up called “Building Fund” for the future expansion of our facilities.  There is also a fund for paying on the “Parsonage Debt”.  Just indicate “Building Fund” or “Parsonage Debt” on the memo line of your check if you would like to contribute to either of these funds.  Online givers can specify the same designations.
