Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is caregiving ministry that supplements pastoral care. The program teaches laypersons to provide one-on-one care for individuals who request support. The confidential care-giver and care-receiver relationship, usually conducted by weekly visits, may continue for months or years.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
Catalina Granja

Maybe you are looking for someone to help you make sense of a stressful situation within yourself, your marriage or your family- to help you learn how you may yourself be creating or adding to that stress (without realizing it, of course!). That's ok, most of us have done this. I am here to help. I can work together with you to develop more effective ways of dealing with these life stressors so that you can learn to live a happier and successful life. As a psychotherapist I have learned how to guide my clients to do just that. Please call Catalina at 954-464-4971 for a free consultation.

visitation Ministry:

We have many people in our family of faith who are no longer able to make it to worship because of illness or disability. You can be a part of keeping them connected and letting them know that they are loved and valued! If you enjoy spending time with people in need, we would love to talk with you about the visitation team! Visiting in teams of two, on a pre-scheduled rotation, the scheduled team will receive assignments for people needing visits. Each team will make visits at some point during their assigned week.

If you would be interested in providing small loaves of bread, or in delivering the loaves to our visitors to thank them for worshipping with us, we'd love to have you join our team!
