"Christ Caring for People through People."








Stephen Ministry

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."  - Matthew 11:28

 

Are you in need of ... a caring Christian who will listen, empathize, encourage, pray, provide confidential care, and patiently support you as you work through a crisis or difficult time?

Or, do you know someone ... perhaps a friend, neighbor, co-worker, colleague, or relative who could benefit from this type of care?

Atonement’s Stephen Ministers provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people who are:

  • Grieving the death of a loved one
  • Hospitalized or recovering from hospitalization
  • Lonely or discouraged
  • Coping with a terminal illness or caring for a family member with a terminal illness
  • Unemployed or in a job crisis
  • Disabled or caring for an ill or disabled family member
  • Moving or relocating
  • New to the congregation or the community
  • Anticipating the birth or adoption of a child
  • Homebound or institutionalized
  • Transitioning into retirement
  • Dealing with the crisis of aging
  • Facing a life transition
  • Experiencing a spiritual crisis
  • Victims of a disaster or accident

And for people facing countless other crises or life challenges or who are going through a difficult time and could benefit from the care of a supportive Christian friend.
