Zion Lutheran Church believes in ministering to not only our own congregation but also to others who are in need:

  • Stephen Ministry
    • 1 John 1:1-3: On All Saints’ Day, we thank God over and over again that He has made us into His children through the death and resurrection of Jesus. Now our challenge is to live, with the Holy Spirit’s power, as growing and maturing children of God.Feeling Down?? Our Stephen Ministers can help. Stephen Ministers aren’t just there for “big” crises. They’re also available for the “little” ones because many times the little things can really add up. So don’t wait until you have a really big concern; consider Stephen Ministry if the little things have you feeling down. If you are going through a difficult time, a Stephen Minister is here to support you.Have you heard of a “medical durable power of attorney” and a “living will”, bud you aren’t sure what they include? Stop by the Stephen Ministry Table during coffee hour on Sundays or stop by the mailboxes any other time and pick up a pamphlet that includes both documents. The Stephen Ministers are here to support you. If you need someone to talk to in a confidential manner even for just a couple of minutes, please contact Joan Kniss or one of our Pastors.

      What is Stephen Ministry?
      Our Congregation’s Stephen Minister equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

      A Stephen Minister is…

      A child of God who walks beside a person who is hurting.
      A congregation member with gifts for caregiving who was carefully selected to serve in this role.
      A lay person who has received 50 hours of training in providing emotional and spiritual care.
      A caring, Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports, and encourages.
      Someone who will “be there” for his or her care receiver, meeting faithfully for about an hour a week, for as long as there’s a need.
