Ministry Opportunities
 
What Exactly is this Stephen Ministry We've Been Hearing About? 
 
Stephen Ministry is lay caring ministry. Stephen Ministers are not counselors or therapists; rather, they are caring Christian friends who can offer a listening ear to help others through the tough times in life. Stephen
Ministers are trained and supervised in their ministry. On November 18 Our Savior's will commission 15 Stephen Ministers who will have completed 50 hours of training for this special ministry. If you are going through a tough time and could use a caring friend, please talk with or send an email to our Parish Nurse, Stacy Meyer (
parishnurse@oslcstillwater.org ) or with Becky Maier ( jbmaier@hotmail.com ), who are the Stephen Minister leaders here at Our Savior's. They would very much like to talk with you.
 
Request for Prayers and Support
 
Everyday joys and sorrows...Once in a lifetime joys and sorrows. Your brothers and sisters at Our Savior's want to support you. Email or call Pastor Christine Wenzel or Parish Nurse, Stacy Meyer, with any of your needs.
