Have you ever put a 1000-piece puzzle together? The box comes with pieces of all shapes, sizes and colors, and it looks like a mess that you'll never be able to figure
out. But somehow you find the end pieces and begin making the frame and
soon you're finding pieces that fit in until the puzzle is completed and becomes a
beautiful picture. Our lives are kind of like a puzzle. We begin with what is taught to us by our parents,
teachers, pastors, Sunday School teachers, and it forms a foundation that we can build on. We are happy
when we find the right pieces that fit and sometimes we struggle to find a piece to fit in the puzzle. It's
not a fast process and it takes patience and perseverance until eventually, through trial and error we
complete the work. Are there pieces of your life that just don't seem to be the right fit? Sometimes things
just don't go the way we planned or aren't what we hoped they would be. These are times when it's helpful
to have someone else to help you put the pieces together. A Stephen Minister is here to help and walk
alongside you during these times. Working together with the help of God is a first step in creating wholeness
again. God does have a plan for our lives and He can help us put together the pieces of our broken
lives. He has promised He will be with us always and we can depend on Him.
If you feel the need for a Stephen Minister or know of someone who you think would benefit from our
ministry, please contact Pastor Craig during the summer months.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who
have been called according to His purpose.
