Stephen Ministry at St. Alban’s
If you have been considering a new avenue of service, St. Alban’s Stephen Ministry is looking for spiritually mature individuals who can commit to weekly one-to-one support of parishioners facing challenges. The parish has benefitted from this ministry for 10 years. A 50-hour training series begins in September. Learn more here or talk to Stephen Leaders Jo Turner or Sandy Loether. Jo would also be happy to meet with you.
Seeking Mentors for our Children and Youth
Looking for a way to give back that is both life-giving and spiritually nourishing – not to mention fun? Both our Sunday School and our youth groups are seeking some new leaders this fall. While many teachers are returning, we do have openings in our 2s & 3s class, PreK to Kindergarten, as well as 1st to 3rd Grade. We need both Godly Play storytellers and assistants to help with transitions. We currently have openings in our youth groups as well – Rite 13, J2A, and Senior Youth. We work in teams so that leaders serve 2-3 times per month. No prior experience required - just an open mind and heart and a willingness to seek God with our young people. Training will be provided as needed, including the Diocesan training Safeguarding God’s Children. Intrigued? Contact the Rev’d Emily Griffin in person or by email.
