This program has trained several members of our church as certified listeners -- aka Stephen Ministers. Stephen Ministers provide help and hope to any individual in need of someone to talk to. Everyone goes through time of difficulty or crisis and having someone who cares enough to listen can ease those times of confusion, stress, or loneliness. No problem is too small to receive care and the arrangement is completely confidential. If you or anyone you know could use a Stephen Minister, send us an email.
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind. It's a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives. The large group worship meets in our sanctuary at 6 pm. The small groups meet
at 7 pm. Feel free to come to either or both!
