Here's the latest update from this joint ministry sponsored by Saint Stephen Lutheran Church, United Methodist Church of Antioch, and St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church:
In case you missed it, the Christian Wellness Ministry (CWM) page is now "live". It mirrors the CWM brochure, and outlines the services available. The CWM page can be accessed from the websites of the participating churches; while you're here on the Saint Stephen website, there's a link on the Home Page and also an option under "About Us".
A new CWM brochure has been produced, and is available (in .pdf format) for downloading / printing. Click HERE for the file...
