Help & Care
If you or someone you care about is experiencing the grief of loss, serious health issues, separation or divorce, job loss, or any other life changes or challenges that cause you heartache, our Stephen Ministers would love to meet with you.
Centenary’s Stephen Ministers provide confidential, one-on-one emotional and spiritual care to people experiencing various life challenges or crises. Their goal is not to “fix” but to listen, encourage and support those who are in hard times. Stephen Ministers are not professional counselors, but have had training to come alongside hurting people.
If you or someone you know could benefit from Stephen Ministry, call our Referrals Coordinator Caren Burhans at (209) 918-1003 or email us: email@example.com.

There are people in our church family whose health prevents them from being as involved as they once were. The Care Team exists to keep these beloved and vital people connected to life in our church.
Meal Delivery: Whether it’s a long-awaited addition to your family or an unexpected injury, sometimes things happen that make it hard to find time to cook! The church family members in our Care Team can help take the edge off the stress by arranging delivery of home-cooked meals.
Better Together: Older adults can attend these sessions to prepare healthy meals to bring home. It’s fun, fellowship, and a chance to fill your fridge.
Even when a church family member is in a hospital bed or unable to leave home, they don’t need to be alone. Our visitation team provides companionship and can even provide recordings of our church services or serve communion.
To learn how to receive home visitation, hospital visitation, or meal delivery for yourself or a loved one, please contact Deanna Hutton, our Director of Adult Ministry.
