 ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL

While worship is the center of our life together as a congregation, the adult education and small group experiences are where people receive the teaching they need to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ, learn more about the Christian life, and become connected to others in our Reid Memorial community of faith. Our adult ministry focus is to nurture, support and encourage adults in their spiritual journey towards God through creative and structured programs of study and fellowship.

Overview. Reid Memorial is a participating Stephen Ministry congregation. Stephen Ministers provide high quality, one-to-one, confidential, Christ centered lay care. Stephen Ministers are members of the Reid congregation who receive over 50 hours of training from Stephen Leaders and are commissioned by the congregation at the end of their training. They usually meet with their care receivers once a week for about an hour. Stephen Ministers additionally meet with their Supervision Group of other Stephen Ministers and Stephen Leaders every other month.

Confidentiality. This is one of the key elements of the strength of the program at Reid. Stephen Ministers may never reveal that they are in a caring relationship with anyone. Only our pastors and the Stephen Ministry Referrals Coordinator know who is assigned to an individual Stephen Minister. Even in the Supervision Group, no names are ever discussed. In over 15 years of experience with Stephen Ministry at Reid, there has never been a breach of confidentiality.

Care Receivers. These are adults who are going through the normal crises of life. This might include divorce, death of spouse, a serious or terminal illness, job loss, or any of the myriad of things that create stress in our lives. Stephen Ministers aren’t counselors. Rather, they provide a quiet ministry of presence and prayer. They are there reliably. Although most Care Receivers are members of Reid Memorial, our program is allowed to tithe by providing care for no more than about 10% of our Stephen Ministers.

The Role of the Pastors. Pastors are somewhat like firefighters. When our members experience a crisis, the pastors are normally there first. Stephen Ministers work under the supervision of the pastors for longer term care that can span several months. The Stephen Ministers are an important adjunct to our pastors to provide longer term lay care for our members and others going through tough times.

Who can I talk to about Stephen Ministry? If you have questions about Stephen Ministry, or would like to receive care from a Stephen Minister, you can talk to a pastor or our Referrals Coordinator.
