Alzheimer’s disease has touched almost every family.  If it has touched yours or someone you know, please join Blair Road’s caregiver support group the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00.  We share ideas of how to manage and support our loved ones, share important educational information, and we support one another! 

No need to sign up, just come.

Would You Like To Be A Stephen Minister?

When was the last time someone really listened to you? We're talking about that undistracted, full attention kind of listening. That's one of the ways Stephen Ministers care for others.

Stephen Ministers work alongside our pastors to care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness. 

How do I become a Stephen Minister? If you have gifts for caring, encouragement, and listening, Stephen Ministry might be the right place for you to serve! Becoming a Stephen Minister does take commitment. Stephen Ministers undergo approximately 50 hours of training and commit to serve the ministry for two years. Stephen Ministers must also submit an application and be interviewed by a member of the Stephen Ministry Leadership Team.

 Please prayerfully consider whether you might want to be part of this vital ministry. We will begin a new Stephen Minster training class in October.  We will meet on Monday from 6:30-8:30.  For more information please contact Lynn Smith at lynnsmith@blairroadumc.org or at 704-545-6785.
