Want to learn to be an active listener and reach out to others in a distinctively Christian way? On Saturday, October 13, First Presbyterian Church of Wheaton will host a Stephen Ministry Workshop from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The half-day workshop consists of three sessions designed to enhance participants' caregiving skills and to help congregations explore ways to expand their caring ministry.
In the first session, participants will learn about the grief process -- the stages of grief and how to minister to people in each of those stages.
The second session will provide an introduction to the Stephen Series, a system of lay ministry through which congregational leaders can equip members to provide one-on-one Christian care to people in need.
The third and final session of the workshop will explain "How to Care in a Distinctively Christian Way". Participants learn what makes Christian caregiving unique and how they can use resources such as prayer, blessings and Scripture in their caring for others.
Registration can be done at Stephen Ministries (314-428-2600), online at www.stephenministry.org/workshop or in person at the event (from 8 -- 9 am). The cost of the workshop is $15 per person or $50 for a group of four or more from the same congregation. Refreshments will be served.
First Presbyterian Wheaton is a member of the Presbyterian Church USA. The church is located at 715 N. Carlton Avenue, Wheaton, IL. For more information, call (630) 668-5147 or visit www.firstpreswheaton.org.
