Stephen Ministry

Eight new Stephen Ministers were recently commissioned for caring Christian ministry here at Woodlawn UMC. The Stephen Ministers are Kelly Gifford, Vickie Waddill, Patricia Cantwell, Margaret Black, Barbara Paulin, Heather Alumbaugh, Bruce Clark, and Jack Wiens.

These lay ministers will be providing care for people in and around our congregation who are grieving, need long-term care, or are going through other crises in their lives. 

We all experience challenges in our lifetimes when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend. Stephen Ministers are ready to provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty, such as:

  • Loss of a loved one
  • Hospitalization
  • Divorce or separation
  • Loneliness or discouragement
  • Spiritual crises
  • Unemployment or job crises
  • Terminal illness
  • Incarceration
  • Aging
  • Birth, adoption, miscarriage
  • Chronic Illness
  • Relocation
  • Recovery after accident or disaster

If you are in need of the assistance of a Stephen Minister, please contact Sharyon Miller at 788-4835 or Millie White at 680-2043.
