Whatever You did for the Least of These…You Did for Me…
In Matthew 25, Jesus says, “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in…” We have many opportunities to respond to Jesus’ great love by showing that love to others. Stephen Ministry is one way our congregation shows that love to people who have deep needs for care. You also have many opportunities to show Jesus’ love during the week. As you encounter people this week, try asking yourself, “How can I show them Jesus today?”
Do you hear God’s calling to serve others as a Stephen Minister? We encourage you to consider serving our congregation and community in this important ministry. We are currently accepting applications for Stephen Ministers for our training session that starts in January of 2013. Applications may be found on the bulletin board in the narthex. The 50 hours of intensive training prepares our candidates for the caring ministry.
If you are interested in learning more about this ministry and about becoming a Stephen Minister, please contact one of our Stephen Ministers (recognized by their blue Stephen Minister name tags on Sunday morning) or one of our Stephen Leaders–Pastors Cheryl or Paul (512-863-2844), Gina Dieringer (512-863-2844), or Joe Vogel (512-863-8160 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
