The Stephen Ministry team at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lewes will hold two virtual information meetings for those who would like to learn about the program. Sessions will be held at 7 p.m., Mondays, Oct. 12 and Nov. 9, via Zoom. Stephen Ministry provides one-on-one support to people who are facing significant life challenges.
Sessions are targeted toward training St. Peter’s parishioners who would be ministerIng to fellow congregation members, but they are open to any Stephen Ministry-affiliated church members who want to learn about this remarkable, internationally recognized program. As a parish with a strong culture of loving concern for one another and the world, St. Peter’s has the strongest program among the Episcopal parishes of Delaware. Over the past six years, 31 people have taken part in this program at St. Peter’s. Participants have found it to be a truly meaningful form of service with training that is deeply rewarding both in lay ministry and in their personal lives.
There is no commitment involved in attending the meetings. Only after people complete the actual training program will they be asked if they wish to participate as commissioned Stephen Ministers.
