Stephen Ministry Training begins in October

Ever wish you knew what to say when a friend’s husband dies? Ever wonder how to help a neighbor who is going through a divorce? Want to learn better how to talk to your children? Know what to offer when a friend asks you for advice about a family problem?

You might want to consider Stephen Minister training. Stephen Ministers learn how to help by learning how to listen. When people look to you for help, more often than not they are asking you to listen…and many of us could improve our listening skills.

Stephen Ministry training will begin in October. The course includes listening skills, understanding feelings, setting boundaries, how specifically to help someone experiencing grief, divorce, serious illness, and lots more. If you would like to learn more, speak to any Stephen Minister or stop by the table in the sanctuary hall to pick up information.
