If you are going through a difficult life event, a Glen Mar Stephen Minister may provide comfort and support. A Stephen Minister is a trained layperson who provides quality, confidential, Christ-centered care and support to a person experiencing grief, divorce, cancer, job loss, loneliness, disability, relocation, and other challenges. Here’s more on how Stephen Ministry works. Email our Stephen Ministry Team, call the church office, or speak to one of the pastors to explore getting a Stephen Minister for yourself.
As needs arise, support groups may be formed for those who are journeying through grief, combating illness, going through divorce or separation, caring for family members, or experiencing any of life’s challenges. Check the Upcoming Events section for new group formation or contact the Congregational Care Team, who can help guide you.
There are a variety of ways we can offer help for emotional, spiritual, and physical needs, some of which are listed below. Not seeing what you need or have questions? Simply get in touch with our Congregational Care Team, who can help guide you to the right resources.
Glen Mar staff, the congregation, and a prayer chain actively participate in collective prayer. The Prayer Chain is an ongoing group who receives prayer requests and then prays for those concerns in their own time and way. All prayer requests are confidential or shared based on your wishes. Request a prayer.
