Stephen Ministry Facts

“Alone”

Your children are grown and gone with families of their own.
You hear from them at Christmas, on your birthday.
You do not have many friends left.
It is hard to get out.
A Stephen Minister would like to be there for you. He or she will listen and care.

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:

John 10:14 -    “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me. ”

What does it mean to know the Lord? It starts with being known by the Lord. He claims us as His own and calls us by name. Then, once we are His, we learn to know Him. In knowing Him, we learn to imitate Him. That is how the Christian life of good works and generosity grows from the Lord’s grace.

Faith Steps – Are you mourning the loss of a loved one? If so, lift your arms in praise to Jesus and meditate on Psalm 30:11-12. Your pain will be transformed into joy.

“Here I Stand” – celebrated today. It remembers the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s refusal to recount his writing and teaching at the Diet of Worms in 1521.
