STEPHEN MINISTRY

In 1 Thessalonians 5 Paul writes, ” Therefore encourage one another and build each other up… Encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.” God has called us all to build up and encourage one another. For those who are experiencing a really difficult time, our Stephen Ministers can provide the special encouragement, care, and support they need until they are past the crisis.

For more information on becoming 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.
