Loving and caring for one another is not just the pastor’s job—it’s something Jesus calls us all to do! Through our Stephen Ministry trained Stephen Ministers, with special gifts for caring, we put those gifts to use in an organized way, bringing Jesus’ love and care to those who most need it.
Stephen Ministers support people struggling with grief, divorce, cancer, hospitalization, physical rehabilitation, long-term care, chronic illness, terminal illness, job loss, loneliness and other life struggles.
Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. More than 11,000 congregations, from more than 160 denominations, and in all 50 states have Stephen Ministry. Stephen Ministry is an important part of our Mission to Share God’s Love with All of His Children here at Christ Lutheran Church and School.
If you or someone you know is going through a difficult time, contact Pastor Groeling about Stephen Ministry. Our Stephen Ministers are ready to provide focused, confidential, one-to-one Christian care—to help that person experience the healing power of Christ’s love.
