Bethany Lutheran Church has been preparing for over two years to start up Stephen Ministry for our congregants and community members. We now have well-trained Stephen Ministers who are prepared to provide high quality care to people during a time of pain or struggle.

Stephen Ministry is a highly confidential, nonjudgmental one-on-one listening ministry designed to bring Christ's love to those who are experiencing the storms of life we all experience from time to time.

If you or someone you know is experiencing the loss of a loved one, divorce, serious illness, hospitalization, move to long-term care, job loss, relocation, family separation due to military deployment, onset of a disability, loneliness, spiritual crisis, stresses related to a new baby, or other life trial, please know that God did not intend for us to face these troubles alone. Our compassionate Stephen Ministers are available to walk with you and support you through these challenging times.

Please contact the church (319-752-3621)or Kim Engle (319-371-5415), our Stephen Leader, will contact you promptly to let you know more about this wonderful ministry of service.
