In Galatians Chapter 6, Paul tells us to "carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
Stephen Ministry is for you – yes you. We are trained lay ministers who desire to be there with you during the tough times in life. We are not counselors or therapists. Instead we are caring friends who can offer a listening ear and join you through a difficult period in your life. Stephen Ministers are trained and supervised in their ministry. If you could use a caring friend, we are here for you. Feel free to contact one of our Stephen Leaders: Lynda Lagan (866-0285) or Connie Hoeke (412-400-6898) and we will be there to help you find who and what you need. All conversations with Stephen Ministers and Stephen Leaders are held in the strictest confidence.
A Stephen Minister is also available to talk and pray with you in the Prayer Room following each Worship Service.
In an effort to accommodate our many busy schedules The Stephen Ministry Team will now be meeting the third Tuesday of each month from 10 A.M. to 12 Noon and the fourth Tuesday of each month form 6:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. with the expectation that each Stephen Minister will attend at least one, but ideally both of these meetings monthly. Each meeting will provide Peer Supervision and Support and Continuing Education will be provided once a month.
