It’s Okay to Be Human
We’re brought up to be strong, self-sufficient, independent people. We tend to think that if we ask for help, it is a sign of weakness. So we try to keep our struggles hidden, stuffed deep inside. However, that’s not God’s plan. Galatians 6:2 says “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” God wants us to care for others—and allow others to care for us in our time of need.
Just Need Someone to Listen?
The truth is we all go through times in our life when we could benefit from a little extra care and attention. That’s what Stephen Ministers are for. The Stephen Ministers at Henderson Hills have been trained to provide high quality, confidential, one-to-one, Christian care to people who are going through a transition or difficult time. They will listen, care, encourage, pray with and for you, and provide weekly support for you as long as your need persists.
Do You Know Someone Who Is Hurting?
If you know someone—perhaps a friend, neighbor, coworker, or relative—who is going through a challenging time, there’s a wonderful way you can help them receive the care and support they need. Tell them about Stephen Ministry! Remember, the caring relationship lasts for as long as the person needs care. It’s free, and it’s a powerful way you can help a hurting friend.
