Two weeks ago, Pastor Michel and three other members of our congregation attended a half-day introductory workshop in Cedar Rapids on Stephen Ministry which, in short, is a ministry of caring for congregation members by trained laypeople within the congregation. It has been around for several years and is used by many congregations throughout the country, including many LCMS congregations.
Pastor will give a introductory presentation on Stephen Ministry between Divine Services Sunday, May 15, beginning at 9:15 a.m. in the gym.
ALL MEMBERS ARE INVITED AND ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND! More information on Stephen Ministry can be found on their website (click here).
