Stephen Ministries expands the care Hope Lutheran can offer by equipping and organizing members to provide Christian care to those in our congregation and community experiencing divorce, grief, terminal illness, job loss, relocation, empty nest, retirement, hospitalization, loneliness and many other challenges.
Hope Lutheran Church is a Stephen Ministry congregation, which, through trained lay ministers, provides high-quality, one-on-one, confidential, Christ-centered care to hurting people. Our hurt may come from sources such as illness—our own or a loved one’s illness, death of a loved one, relationship or financial difficulties, divorce, a sense of loss as we age, even guilt for our own past sins.
“ Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. ”
– Galatians 6:2
