"Love One Another As I Have Loved You"
Pastoral care at Federated Church is enhanced by our Stephen Ministers. These caring lay people have been specially trained in Christian care-giving and they commit themselves to using those skills to help members of the congregation and the community who are experiencing one of life's difficult times -- a death or illness, a job loss, a divorce, a move to a new community, a new baby, etc.
If you or someone you know is experiencing such a situation and could benefit from the support of a Stephen Minister, or if you feel God calling you to this kind of ministry, please talk to one of the Stephen Ministry Leaders listed below.
- Helen Pointer, 440-247-6799

- Darlene Nichols, 440-519-1399
- Kim Lockert, 440-708-6943
