NEED A STEPHEN MINISTER
Stephen Ministry is a ministry through which Hillside members are trained to provide Christian-based care to members of our congregation and community. Stephen Ministers offer free, confidential care to those experiencing a crisis or challenge such as divorce, grief, loss of a job, hospitalization, relocation or loneliness. Those serving in this ministry are specially trained to listen to those who are hurting and walk alongside them. Those desiring care are matched with a Stephen Minister, and the care receiver and Stephen Minister meet about once a week for as long as the care receiver desires care.

If you think a Stephen Minister might be helpful to you or you would like more information on Stephen Ministry, please e-mail Valerie Loner, Minister of Nurture or call 770-924-4777, Ext. 105.
