Navigating a winter season: Find support with Stephen Ministry during personal challenges
Written by Communications Team

In addition to the cold weather outside, many people experience winters in their personal lives. A recent loss through death, divorce or relocation may leave them feeling lonely. A hospitalization, a cancer diagnosis or ongoing medical problems may leave them feeling isolated. The loss of a job, the fear of layoffs or a financial setback can devastate one’s self-esteem. Family and personal struggles may leave them with nowhere to turn for support.

If you are going through a difficult time, our Stephen Ministers can help bring God’s warm love back into your life. They provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care. They will meet with you privately on a weekly basis to listen, to support and encourage you, to pray with and for you, and to walk with you for the duration of your crisis.
