Stephen Ministry Facts

Sadness - A sadness settles so softly on us. It is seemingly without cause.
Yet it lingers like the winter fog.
A caring, trained Stephen Minister is ready to help you find your way through the mist.
He or she will not judge you or push you to get better; instead, your Stephen Minister will listen and care for you while you work through your feelings.

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:
Hebrews 9:12 – “He entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.”
The only price that could redeem us was the very Blood of the Christ. This is the only sacrifice of true worth. His sacrificial giving sets the pattern for our life. For how can we, who are redeemed by the self-giving of God, not also give of ourselves to His Kingdom?

Remember in Your Prayers – Missionaries around the world – especially, Mark and Megan Mantey (Africa), Eric Stinnett family (Africa), David Warner family (Spain), and Preus family (Dominican Republic). Thank God for the work Thompsons did in Africa and ask God to bless their new ministry in Minnesota.
