stephen ministry

Stephen Ministry is a program of lay Christian caregiving to individuals needing spiritual support during difficult life experiences. Palm is in covenant with Stephen Ministries International through which we receive training, guidance, and materials to provide that spiritual support. Stephen Ministry is our congregation’s one-to-one caregiving ministry. God works through Stephen Ministers to plant a seed of hope and healing in a person whose life has been disrupted because of some crisis or life-event. Stephen Ministers and Stephen Leaders are members of the congregation who receive extensive training in Christian caregiving and confidentiality.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling and would like to talk to a Stephen Minister, contact the church office at 717-838-3311 and ask to have the pastor or a Stephen Leader return your call.
