Grief Care



“It’s the one light you have in a dark time as you wait for daybreak and the rising of the MorningStar in your hearts.” 2 Peter 1:19

No matter why you are grieving, whether it is very recent or long past – there is a place for you at one of our two care groups.

Together we accompany one another on our journeys as we reshape our lives. MorningStar and EveningStar helps to lighten the load through the sharing of our lives and experiences in a small group setting.

MorningStar meets the first and third Thursdays of each month at 10:00 a.m. in the chapel.

For more information contact the church office.



Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is one-on-one, confidential care from lay ministers trained to accompany those who are dealing with a difficult time in their life - such as loss, divorce, illness, unemployment, birth, adoption, and many other life changes.

The most important thing that Stephen Ministers do is to listen to you and to be a supportive presence during your difficult time. If you need someone to accompany you through tough times, to listen to you concerns and help you to keep on track when the path is anything but clear, a Stephen Minster maybe helpful for you.

If you feel called to listen to others and to be present with them through difficult times, Stephen Ministry may be a place for you to serve.

For more information contact the church office.
