WE CARE ABOUT YOUWe are committed to care for all people through our prayers, sharing God’s Word, our support, our contact, and our love; recognizing that our care may not remove people’s pain and struggle, but that we communicate God’s presence to each precious soul. We value life from conception to natural death and will see the face of Jesus in our caring both in those we serve and in those who serve us. Together In Christ – Caring for God’s People

EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES? DO YOU NEED A STEPHEN MINISTER?
One way God fulfills his promise of his comforting presence is by providing Stephen Ministers to walk along side those going through challenges such as job loss, illness, divorce, grief or other difficulty. Stephen Ministers (paired men to men or women to women) provide a caring, supportive, non-judgmental, confidential relationship that enables care receivers to share their burdens. Stephen Ministry brings the light of Christ into the darkness of people’s lives. Contact Heidi.Masters@clcop.org for more information.
