Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations using the Stephen Series system to train and equip lay caregivers to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting or experiencing  difficult times. A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person about once a week for about an hour.

Prayer Walk

The prayer walk is a place of solitude in the midst of God’s beauty. During the prayer walk, you will discover signs along the way, each containing a section of the prayer Jesus gave his disciples in Matthew 6:9-13, the Lord’s Prayer.

The walk begins on the lower level on the east side by the church office. Benches are provided along the path as well as a drinking fountain at stop #4. The Prayer Walk ends at the Heritage Garden. The entire walk is about one third of a mile round trip.

This path provides the opportunity for us to circle our church in prayer. We invite you to join in this walk.
