A Stephen Minister Story

A Stephen Minister Story Steve Feith, a retired naval officer married with two children and four grandchildren, loves to ride his motorcycle, smoke cigars, and play golf. He learned about Stephen Ministry at church, but thought it wasn’t for him. He just wasn’t into “emotional” stuff. Yet, as a naval officer, it had been his job to fix problems sailors brought to him. In training for Stephen Ministry, Steve, a fix-it person, learned that Christ, not himself, would fix people…

Stephen Ministry

The risen Christ told his followers to teach, heal and give hope to people wherever they  meet  them. As Christ’s disciples, we are directed to do likewise.  St. Paul  said  we  should  bear one another’s burdens.  These directives from the early Christian church shape and mold the ministry of offering care and comfort in today’s world just as they did so long ago. Stephen Ministry Stephen Ministry was begun in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1975, to ensure that lay ministers…

PALS Tip

PALS Tip Make friends with your neighbors. Oftentimes, we don’t have family nearby when medics and others need relevant information for our care. A neighbor can be responsible for passing along the names and phone numbers of family members in order to help move professional care givers along smoothly. Also, Boswell Hospital has Vials of Life in which pertinent information can be stored to direct care givers to call doctors, legal representatives and family members when necessary.

Heifer Update – December 2018

December 4, 2017 – the day the Lakeview United Methodist Men sent in the first donation to Heifer International. We sent a check of $120 to donate 6 flocks of chicks. We remember doing the math, “passing the gift” and the eventual possibility of “9X” the impact we could help lift 54 families out of poverty and hunger. Since that day the Methodist Men have sent over $15,000 in donations of animals and services for the poor and hungry around…
