Struggling with an addiction? Serenity meets weekly as an anonymous, confidential group. Serenity provides a safe, loving environment where everyone is welcome to share burdens, change lives, and improve their relationship with God.

Serenity is for anyone that has identified behavior in their lives that negatively affects their physical, mental, or spiritual well-being. It is an ongoing meeting that focuses on a Christian interpretation of the “12-steps” using the Serenity Bible as a reference.

Stephen Ministry

In Stephen Ministry, trained and supervised lay persons (called Stephen Ministers) provide one-to-one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges or difficulties.

Stephen Ministers listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional support. The care is confidential. And there is no fee.

Stephen Ministers care for those experiencing challenges such as: loneliness, loss of a spouse, retirement changes, unemployment, discouragement, miscarriage, hospitalization, divorce/grief, terminal illness, or questions about God and faith.



A Stephen Minister is:

  • Someone who cares
  • Someone who supports
  • Someone who listens
  • Someone who shares
