Stephen Ministry

Is life more than you can handle alone right now?

Are you adjusting to a new job, a change in marital status, a serious illness, the death of a loved one, a recent move, or just experiencing a lonely or difficult time in your life?

Could you benefit from having someone who would listen and care and walk with you through this difficult time?

Are you in need of a caring Christian who will listen, empathize, encourage, pray, provide confidential care, and patiently support you as you work through a crisis or difficult time?

Do you know someone, perhaps a friend, neighbor, coworker, colleague, or relative who could benefit from this type of care?

Everyone goes through difficult times.  Having someone to care, to listen to share God's love with you can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing.  God does not intend for you to struggle alone.

Consider allowing a Stephen Minister to walk with you on your journey to wholeness.  If you, or someone you know, are in need of this special ministry, or if you are interested in becoming a part of this ministry, contact our Stephen Leaders, Fleda Collins and Shirley Herring, at or by calling the church office at 865-475-3826.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." — Matthew 11:28
