“When I said, ‘My foot is slipping,’ your love, O Lord, supported me.”  (Psalm 94:18)


God gives us support through our Christian brothers and sisters. As a congregation we strive to be sensitive to each other’s needs and take the time to support each other through prayers, phone calls, friendly chats after church services and even through visits. We also have Stephen Ministers who offer their support.


“You are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” (2 Corinthians 3:3)


Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer one-to-one Christian care to people going through difficult times. For more information please contact: Suzanne Burke, Kathe Cochrane, Jan Ettele, Nora Timson, Carole Jean Soine or Pastor Linda.
