Stephen Minister Training

A Wonderful Journey


John Castiglione said being a Stephen Minister has been the “most wonderful journey” for him. That journey started with training to become a Stephen Minister, and it’s continued as he’s provided Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. “Being a Stephen Minister has taught me not just to listen with my ears, but to listen also with my heart,” Castiglione said. “Care receivers feel as if they are not going through daily life by themselves. They have a Stephen Minister to walk alongside them in their journey. Everyone experiences challenges in their lives at times and could benefit from the support of a caring Christian.”


If you feel called to be part of this caring ministry, please register below. There is no obligation. Pastor Angie will contact you with more information.


If you or someone you know, needs this support, contact Pastor Angie.

What We're Learning in September

PRESCHOOL & CHILDREN

ANIMATED: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT ON THE PROPHETS


SERIES OVERVIEW:

If you’ve ever gotten a little emotional during your favorite Disney or Pixar movie, you know animation is a powerful tool to not only tell big stories, but to make us feel big feelings, too! In this four-week series, we’ll look at some stories of the Old Testament prophets as we explore some of those feelings. These stories will remind kids that God cares about our big feelings. With God, we can all feel secure, comforted, valued, and loved, even when our emotions tell us otherwise. 

STUDENTS

REAL: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM THE OLD & NEW TESTAMENT ON FRIENDSHIP


SERIES OVERVIEW:

It’s easy to spot a fake friend (and even easier to be a fake friend at times), but what’s not-so-easy is figuring out how to make and keep friendships that are real. Maybe it's just easier to keep our friendships on the surface. Or maybe we’ve never seen real friendship in real life before. Or maybe we don’t actually know anyone we trust enough to be real with. These days, when “friends” are just a click or a follow away, it’s more important than ever to figure out what true friendship really looks like. In this 4-week series, we’ll explore the words and stories of Jesus, the disciples, Paul, Timothy, David, and Jeremiah to help us understand what authentic friendship can look like. Together, we’ll discover that real friends choose each other wisely, show each other grace, comfort each other, and help each other grow.
