Stephen Ministers and Galileans
Stephen Ministry trains lay members of the church to provide short and long term support to people in need. Stephen Ministers are God’s representatives trained to work alongside our pastors to meet regularly with their care-receivers and to bring Christian love and spiritual support. Anyone in need of spiritual support may contact the church office for referral. Classes are held every two years to train new Stephen Ministers. If you are interested please contact the church office.
Galileans visit the sick, both at home and in the hospital. Their ministry of comfort and support is invaluable. They also serve as communion stewards, bringing the sacrament of communion to those who are unable to make it to church. By their work, our communion table is extended beyond our sanctuary.
If you feel that you need the help of a Stephen Minister or a Galilean, or if you feel called to become involved as a caregiver in either program, please contact the church office.
