OSL Stephen Ministries
with Everyday Life
by Joan Bacon
As a Stephen Minister, I’ve had the privilege of accompanying three care partners on their journeys to new or re-established everyday lives. OSL’s Stephen Ministry training, the ongoing support of other Stephen Ministers, and God’s Spirit help me carry out OSL’s mission. It’s very rewarding to be part of this ministry. My faith has grown, I’ve learned new skills, and I’ve found new friends.
November 10 is Stephen Ministry Sunday. You’ll hear from other Stephen Ministers and their care partners about this program’s impact. If you feel God’s holy nudge to become a Stephen Minister or to receive support from one, contact Pr. Tim Lemme or Stephen Ministry Coordinator Deb Harlan in the Church Office, 336-2942.
