Care Ministry

This ministry is involved in the caring for our members and the community. As people go through difficult times whether in the death of a loved one, illness or other trying events this team is charged with finding ways to come alongside folks and see what help they can provide. If you’re interested in helping or are in need of a hand, contact Judy Traup.

Stephen Ministry

What is a Stephen Minister?  A Stephen Minister is…

+a child of God who walks beside a hurting person;
+a caring Christian who really listens;
+a member of our congregation who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide distinctively  Christian care;
+a person who is ready to focus on your needs;
+a trustworthy confidante who will keep everything you say—and even your identity—confidential; and
+someone who will faithfully meet with you on a weekly basis for as long as your need persists.

A Stephen Minister is NOT…
+a counselor or therapist;
+a problem-solver;
+someone who runs errands or helps with chores; or
+a casual visitor.

Prayerfully consider whether God is calling you to take part in this caring ministry as a Stephen Minister.  Information about the next training series anries at Zion is one more step in our Journey to Growth as we follow the mission Christ has given us.  You can read more about Stephen Ministries by clicking here.
