Our congregation has recently enrolled in the Stephen Series. The Stephen Series system trains and organizes laypeople to do caring ministry. Recently, Barbara Boley, PhD. attended a seven day Leader’s Training Course in Orlando, Fla and will soon train some of our members to be Stephen Ministers here at SHUCC.
Those training for Stephen Ministry will learn skills and develop their talents for bringing Christ’s healing love to people who are grieving, depressed, or experiencing other stresses in life. Loving others in Jesus’ name is an opportunity for all who are God’s children. Likewise, the joy of helping others is a privilege of all Christians, for the Holy Spirit has given gifts to each Christian to use in service to others and to build up the church.
Stephen Ministry will rely on the gifts the Holy Spirit has given our lay members so that, as more people are equipped to care, Christ’s love for us will be able to go out from us in a greater and more effective way than it does now.
