It's monsoon season again!! A time when storms are more prevalent and some of the storms have caused damage to property or loss of electricity. It serves as a reminder that the weather is not under our control and all we can do is heed the warnings and watches. That's kind of like our lives, isn't it?
At some point in our lives we will all face storms. It may be the loss of eyesight or independence, an illness, the death of a loved one, problems with family members, a handicap, or another kind of loss. These storms are crisis situations, and at that time we realize that we are going to have to cope with the changes that are not in our control. Some of the overwhelming changes may turn our world upside down and cause us to reach out for help.
Our Stephen Ministry program is here for just those times! We are available on a confidential one on one basis to help weather your “storm". We listen, encourage, pray, and share God's word and promises. God is in control and the only One who can change our hearts and minds to restore balance and wholeness.
A quote from the book, "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young---"Hope is a golden cord connecting you to Heaven. This cord helps you hold your head up high even when multiple trials are buffeting you. I will never leave your side, and I never let go of your hand." If you're going through one of the storms of life, please consider contacting the Pastor, one of the leaders listed below or any of the Stephen Ministers (the people with the blue name badges).
We want to walk with you through the storm!
Luke 8:22-24 tells the story of Jesus and His disciples in a boat when a storm came up. The disciples were afraid and didn't know what to do but Jesus asked them "where is your faith?" and he calmed the winds and the waves. The disciples were amazed and asked one another, "Who is this" He commands the winds and the water, and they obey Him. He can calm the storms in your life too!!
IF YOU FEEL GOD CALLING YOU TO SHARE HIS LOVE AND HELP OTHERS SERVING AS A STEPHEN MINISTER, PLEASE CONTACT US!! YOU WILL BE BLESSED BY SERVING!
