Side by Side Ministry
Side by Side ministry is exactly what we do. We’re a trained team of caring people who walk alongside those who are in crisis due to health, family, job, and LIFE. St. Matthew Lutheran embraces everyone’s story and strives to connect with people in the midst of their struggles and joys. Side by Side is a ministry that connects trained volunteers with those who are looking to share and find support during difficult times. A side by side volunteer is carefully matched with someone who needs and wants a listening ear. Watch for more information as this new ministry unfolds.
If you are interested in becoming a Side by Side volunteer, or if you would like to meet with a Side By Side Volunteer, please contact the Side By Side Coordinator, Joan Stewart, email@example.com or 425-226-2420.
Thoughts from a Side By Side (formerly Stephen Ministry) recipient:
When I contacted SMLC’s Stephen Ministry I knew that I needed someone to talk to, but I didn’t know what a positive and profound effect it would have on my life. Having a caring person hold my hand through my darkest days gave me the strength and confidence I needed to move forward. Stephen Ministry enriched my life and is a blessing I’ll always be grateful for.
