Stephen Ministers November 2020
by Penny Brill
Excerpts from Stephen Ministry Care Letter
Are you experiencing pandemic fatigue - that feeling of being mentally and emotionally exhausted by everything that’s going on right now?
We’re all facing different kinds of life challenges during this time -
• Isolation and loneliness;
• Anxiety over health;
• Juggling work, childcare, and schooling responsibilities;
• Financial strain or job loss;
• Uncertainty about the future . . . The list goes on.
It’s no wonder we may be hit by pandemic fatigue - I know I have. But you don’t have to go through it alone. If you or someone you care about is experiencing difficulties like these, our Stephen Ministers are ready to listen, care, encourage, and be there to offer support. A Stephen Minister will meet with you privately - by phone, by video chat, or possibly in person when it’s safe to do so - to focus on you and your needs. It’s free and completely confidential, and it offers real care, comfort, and hope. You can find out more by calling the church office at 228-4189.
If you feel a calling to work with others in their season of need, Stephen Ministry is staring up a virtual training class. You can reach out to Alan Parsons for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
