Thursday evenings and Encounter service

No carpenter would show up on the job with only one tool. Similarly, golfers use various clubs depending on the situation at hand. So why would praying for someone be any different? We need the right ‘tool’ for the job! If you have a heart to see people set free physically, emotionally and spiritually along with a desire to gain additional tools for your prayer arsenal. Become part of this fun and exciting ministry as we partner with Jesus to set captives free.

Contact Jeff Sanders at jsanders1160@gmail.com

Church members are invited to join us as we walk the perimeter of the church property in directed, specific prayers. Pray nearer to pray clearer.

The prayer walk dates are posted in bulletins and church media.

What is a Stephen Minister?
Description of Stephen Ministry
Pastors will always be on the front lines of care as first-responders, but there are normally many more on-going care needs than pastors can effectively meet by themselves. Stephen Ministry provides a biblical solution; this international program equips lay persons to provide distinctively Christian, confidential, one-on-one care to others experiencing life crises or difficulties

Stephen Ministers serving in this church-commissioned role are members of CommPres, are carefully selected, and received 50+ hours of training. They attend to their care-receivers through effective listening skills, prayer, and encouragement — all within a safe, confidential environment. The names of care-receivers are never mentioned. Ministers generally meet with care-receivers about an hour a week, for as long as there is a need. They also meet twice monthly for supervision, support and continuing education. Stephen Ministers make a two-year commitment to the program.
Potential Care-Receivers Are People Who Are . . .
• lonely
• struggling with parenting
• grieving the loss of a loved one
• separated or in the process of divorce
• terminally ill, and their families
• experiencing job loss or financial setbacks
• experiencing crisis situations
• facing legal difficulties
• struggling with their faith
• separated from family
• recovering substance abusers
• experiencing hurt from abuse
• adjusting to a life-changing situation: retirement, stay-at-home mom, new parent, empty nester, college graduate, etc.

What Do Stephen Ministers Do?
• Pray
• Listen
• Explore feelings
• Share Christ’s love
• Maintain confidentiality
• Attend to the care-giving process and leave the results to God
• Walk with people who are journeying to wholeness
• Serve in this ministry of presence and companionship

Stephen Ministers do not “fix” their care-receivers. Rather, they are committed Christ-Followers who provide confidential, one-to-one, Christian care to people who are experiencing a difficult time. Stephen Ministers are the Care-Givers and Christ is the Cure-Giver.

Within the pew pockets are cards designed for writing your prayer requests. Please place the prayer request card in the offering plate as it is passed or contact the church office midweek at 407-566-1633.

Pastor William will pray over each and every request as will a confidential prayer team. The prayer team will review each prayer request to best assist each person in meeting their needs both with prayer and with outreach such as; cards, calls, visits, meals (see Mercy meals ) , transportation, or special needs.
