If you have a need for a Stephen Minister or are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister fill in the form to the right.
Stephen Ministry at South Harborcreek is part of the Pastoral Care
Ministry. It is a ministry that reflects the love of Christ and through
that love comes healing and wholeness. We equip and empower
lay caregivers--called Stephen Ministers--to provide high-quality,
confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. God
works through Stephen Ministers to plant a seed of hope and
healing in a person whose life seems barren and forlorn because
of some crisis or tragedy.
This ministry began in 2013. Since then we have trained men and women from all walks of life to serve as Stephen Ministers. Most become Stephen Ministers as a way to serve others, but quickly discover the amazing blessings God gives them in return. Stephen Ministry will be a success here at South Harborcreek UMC because we care about hurting people.
Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV)
