Thirty former and current Stephen Ministers shared memories at the 20th Anniversary luncheon May 27 in the Fireside Room.
The photo shows two current Stephen Ministry leaders and three former Stephen Ministers who attended the luncheon.
In the early 90s several FUMC members who had lost loved ones wanted to learn more about how to help others who were grieving.
In July 1991 threee people from the staff and congregation went to Berkeley, CA, to attend a two-week training program for Stephen Leaders.
They commissioned the first class of new Stephen Ministers at FUMC in Spring 1992. Since that time over 60 people have been trained as Stephen Ministers.
Anyone interested in learning more about Stephen Ministry and the Fall Training program should come to a brief information meeting Sunday, June 24, 11:45 in Room 110.
