SEED (Spiritual Enrichment Every Day)
SEED hosts special events during the year that provide sacred times and spaces for persons to experience God's love and grace. Visit the SEED page for the next event.
Through workshops, participants may learn spiritual disciplines and a variety of ways to pray. Noted speakers engage the community in new discovery the wonder of being called and claimed by the Holy Triune God and living in a faithful community.
Sometimes, we need the care of another person. Stephen Ministry is a program that equips lay persons to provide distinctively Christian one-to-one care to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances - both in our congregation and in our community.
Stephen Ministers work together with our pastors to reach more people with Christian care than the pastors can reach by themselves. Stephen Ministers are committed Christian people who:
- Express God's care through their lives to others.
- Receive 50 hours of initial training in important caring ministry skills and concepts and are then commissioned as Stephen Ministers.
- Serve for at least 2 years.
- Receive continuing education and skill building throughout their time of service.
- Visit another person regularly and dependably to offer Christian support and care.
- Are committed to preserving the confidential nature of the caring relationship.
