Stephen Ministry Facts

He asked you last night over dinner.
The ring is beautiful.
And now there’s so much to do before the wedding, and so many questions about the future. During the happy, busy time of your engagement, a Stephen Minister can be there for you to listen and care.

Stewardship Notes
Luke 10:25 –And behold a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” That’s just not a good question! Doing and inheriting just don’t go together: what can you do to inherit Bill Gates’ fortune? Nothing. Inheriting is about birth right: doing is about merit. We received eternal life by birth right in our Baptism into Christ. All of our doing in the Kingdom of God flows from this, from who we are by our new birth. It can never be the other way around.
