Caring Ministry

 "...for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me."

                    Matt 25: 35-36

Stephen Ministry

One-on-One Christian Care

The After People, Stephen Ministers, come into a person's life immediately after a crisis has hit and then provide emotional and spiritual care for as long after as needed. Everyone goes through difficult times.  Having someone to care, to listen, and to share God's love with you, can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing.  

Our congregation's Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and the community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. You do not have to be a member of this congregation to receive care from Stephen Minister. Stephen Ministers are members who listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are facing a crisis or going through tough times.

A Stephen Minister is...

  • A child of God who walks beside a hurting person;
  • A caring Christian who really listens;
  • A member of our congregation who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide distinctively Christian care;
  • A person who is ready to focus on your needs;
  • A trustworthy confidant who will keep everything you say--and even your identity--confidential;
  • Someone who will faithfully meet with you on a weekly basis for as long as your need persists.

If you are:

  • Grieving the death of a loved one,
  • Hospitalized or recovering from hospitalization;
  • Lonely or discouraged;
  • Coping with a terminal illness or caring for a family member with a terminal disease;
  • Unemployed or in a job crisis;
  • Disabled or caring for an ill or disabled family member;
  • Facing a life transition;
  • Experiencing a spiritual crisis,

then, please, contact: June Dempsey, 281-704-4018  or Tom Mooney, 713-824-0972.         

They are here to help.
