An Invitation to Stephen Ministry Commissioning
On Sunday, June 18th during the 10:30 a.m. service, our congregation will commission one new Stephen Ministry Leader and 6 new Stephen Ministers. Our Stephen Leader and Ministers will have completed substantial training to equip them for their task. We will lay hands on them, pray for them, send them out to lead and minister, and ask for God’s blessing.
This commissioning service offers an opportunity to show our support for this ministry. Some of us may recognize a call to use our special gifts in this ministry and may apply to be a Stephen Leader or Stephen Minister. Others may accept the care of a Stephen Minister. We can be ministers of referral, watching for people in need and suggesting a Stephen Minister’s care.
