Stephen Minister Availability: There are times when our pastors are busy with greeting and other tasks following the worship service and not immediately available to have private conversations. To assist our pastors during the Lenten Season, Stephen Ministers will be available after each worship service for one to one listening, prayers, and quiet meditation. As you move through the receiving line, please let Pastor Anna or Pastor Jennifer know if you desire prayer for any reason, or wish to speak with one of the pastors. A Stephen Minister will be present with you until a pastor is available.
