Stephen Ministry Commissioning
Since the beginning of September, four faithful members of Grace have been attending the Stephen Ministry training classes on Tuesday evenings. Each one of them has felt the call to come alongside another during a difficult life transition. They have completed fifty hours of in-depth training that will equip them to more effectively be the hands of Jesus as they minister to those who find themselves in need of a compassionate, confidential listening ear. During the Saturday evening service on Saturday, March 10, at 5 p.m. and on Sunday, March 11, at the 8:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. services, Mary Jean Connor, Richard Newell, Annemarie Oats and Nadia Kanhai will be commissioned as fully trained and committed Stephen Ministers.
If you are facing a difficult life circumstance and would like a Christ-centered caring Stephen Minister to share your journey, confidentially, and for as long as it takes, please don’t hesitate to contact the Church Office (630--355-1748). You are not alone!
