Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV)
Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
Stephen Ministry Mission:
TRUMC Stephen Ministry walks with Christ alongside the hurting, serves God in our church and community, and changes lives through caring laypersons bringing Christ's healing to the broken.
Stephen Ministry Vision:
TRUMC Stephen Ministry trains caring laypersons to extend the love of Christ to the hurting in our church and community through loving, confidential one-to-one relationships
Together Campaign : Our current Education Building was built in 1964. To say we've outgrown the building is an understatement to say the least. And building codes and standards have changed too - with the current building not meeting many of these requirements.
The current building has served us well this past half century, but no longer is it a safe, up-to-date space that lends itself fully to making disciples who 'trail Christ.' With a new building, we can continue to grow while serving God, changing lives, and making new disciples.
The proposed new building will house our educational needs: Sunday School classrooms, meeting rooms, rest rooms, a Children's Chapel and an Office/Administration area. Phase 2 of the plan will house our proposed Child Development Center to provide quality, Christian childcare for our community.
