Stephen Ministries

"Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ"  Galatians 6:2

 

 

Stephen Ministry is a national ministry grounded on Jesus' command to love one another. Members of CPC who are called to this ministry commit to 50 hours of training to learn how to provide confidential Christian care-giving to members of our congregation and community.

 

Stephen Ministers help multiply the care our church provides by becoming skilled lay caregivers, equipped to bring Christ's healing love to the in need.

 

After completing training Stephen Ministers meet twice a month.
