Stephen Ministry Facts

“I Don’t Know What to Say.” 
Those who experience the grief that comes with a great loss feel as if they are the only ones who have ever gone through this terrible experience. Stephen Ministry training prepares Stephen Ministers to care sensitively for all others going through these difficult times.

A (new) training class for Stephen Ministries is starting soon. Consider this ministry opportunity. For more information, contact Pastor Thomas, Betty Textor or Abbe Heemeier. Be a working Christian.

Stewardship Notes:
Matthew 4:20 – “Immediately they left their nets and followed him.” Discipleship cost Peter and Andrew everything they had. They left their trade, their hometown and their families, and they followed Jesus. God has called us to the same discipleship and the same devotion, though the exact details of how that is lived out will vary. The important thing is that we know that all we have is the Lord’s to be used for His purpose, and we are His disciples, ready to follow where He leads.

Thought for the Day – “Just Think” by Roy Lessin. Just think you’re not here by chance, but by God’s choosing His hand formed you and made you the person you are. He compares you to no one else—you are one of a kind. You lack nothing that His grace can’t give you. He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation.
