Stephen Ministers are trained to help individuals cope with a variety of life’s challenges by providing a caring, consistent, compassionate and faithful presence. Stephen Ministers  are prepared to walk beside care receivers for a few weeks, a few months or however long they are needed. If you are experiencing a life challenge that has you down – an illness, empty nest, separation or divorce, job loss, etc. – and feel you could benefit from this sort of one on one listening ministry, please speak with Pastor Matt, or First Church Stephen Ministry leaders Ginny Wandell or Penny Winn. Stephen Ministry is a completely confidential program. Our ministry is here for you.
