Stephen Ministry

If you are going through a difficult time, our Stephen Ministers can bring God’s warm love back into your life. They provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care. They will meet with you privately on a weekly basis to listen, support, and encourage you, to pray with and for you, and to walk with you for the duration of your crisis.


Please do not report a friend’s need without first asking his or her permission to do so. Our Stephen Ministers are ready to care for you! To find out more about Stephen Ministry, or to receive a Stephen Minister’s care, call Kim Pape at 422-2429 ext. 107 or email Kim at





Stephen Ministry is a one-on-one ministry using trained lay ministers to provide distinctively Christian and confidential care to men and women in crisis.  We currently have 21 active Stephen Ministers which includes 3 leaders. All participate in two monthly supervision meetings as well as their weekly visits with assigned care receivers. Recruitment and training for additional Stephen Ministers takes place on a regular basis.


Are You Experiencing a “Winter” In Your Life? Regardless of the season, many people experience “winters” in their personal lives. A recent loss through death, divorce or relocation may leave them feeling lonely. A hospitalization, cancer diagnosis or ongoing medical problems may leave then feeling isolated. The loss of a job, the fear of layoffs, or a financial setback can devastate one’s self-esteem. Family and personal struggles may leave them with nowhere to turn for support.
