Stephen Ministry at Church of the Covenant.
There are six Stephen Ministers from Church of the Covenant. The newest one, Dick Ensor, was commissioned on April 30, 2016, with approximately 20 other new Stephen Ministers from several churches around the area at a joint communion service at Sydenstricker United Methodist Church in Springfield, VA.On Sunday, May 1 at the 11am worship service the five other Stephen Ministers--Marita Dillery, Bill Murphey, Patrick & Susan Tarr, and Susanne Trible, were recommissioned and Dick was recognized as part of this group. We work together to provide care to members and friends of Covenant who would like a Stephen Minister to walk along side them for awhile. If you would like to request more information about Stephen Ministry, contact Stephen Leader Susanne Trible through the church office--703-524-4115 or leave a message for Pastor Beth.
A favorite prayer of Stephen Ministers
“Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow,
the same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you tomorrow and every day.
Either He shields you from suffering or
He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace then, and put aside
all anxious thoughts and imaginings.”
St. Francis de Sales
