Ever wonder what Stephen Ministry is and does? All Ascension parishioners are invited to learn about the wonderful program of Stephen Ministry. . . without volunteering for anything!
Due to the complications of COVID and the safety precautions required, our community disconnected in many ways during 2020 and part of 2021. We are blessed to be emerging into a new season that allows us to gather on Sundays and other days of the week as well. Even though the pandemic seemed to turn our lives and our routines upside down - life continued to happen. All too many of you have experienced hardships or some sort of loss, and going through difficult times without community makes the loss even heavier. Our community offers Stephen Ministry to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people who are going through a difficult time. A Stephen Minister is a well-trained caregiver who listens, cares, prays, encourages, and offers the love of Christ during a time of need. We invite you to come and be with us this Saturday, October 23rd at 9 am to learn more about this Christ-centered spiritual care. Our Stephen Minister Leadership team and our current Stephen Ministers will be present to share with you their experiences or answer any questions you may have. Please let us know you are coming by signing up here. I look forward to gathering with you!! Yours in Christ,
