NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO?
Our confidential listening ministry could help!

Stephen Ministers are volunteers who are trained to care for those going through a challenge in life: a tough time brought about by loss, divorce, unemployment, relocation, caregiving, chronic illness, aging or other difficulty. Those in need of someone to talk to will be provided a trained Stephen Minister who will listen one-on-one (male-to-male and female-to-female). To learn more about Stephen Ministry, contact Patricia Eddy at pmeddy7@gmail.com or 813.390.6611.
