Serenity

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. It 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

Stephen Ministry is a ministry at SPL in which 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 to people who are facing a crisis or going through tough times. The care you’ll receive is confidential. 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, questions about God and faith, or other challenges.

A Stephen Minister is:

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

To learn how you, a friend, neighbour, or relative can receive care, talk to Karen Rennie, Director of Community.

If you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister, the next training will begin in the Fall. Contact Karen Rennie for additional details.
