The leaders and pastoral staff at FPC genuinely care about you—and about those whom you love. Are you facing a challenge in your life? Death, illness, marital strife, and myriad troubles can leave us feeling alone and helpless. Don’t go it alone, we are here to help!
Our pastors provide pastoral counseling on request. Our Deacons provide meals, prayers, and other forms of care and support. We also have a prayer list that circulates to over 150 church members who are dedicated to praying for those in need. Contact the church office at (608) 949-9445 and let us know how we can be there for you.
We’ll Pray For You!
We are excited to offer prayer to those in need after both services, every Sunday. This is open to everyone—children, adults, members, attenders, those who have a personal need, and those who would like prayer for a loved one. These prayer needs will be considered private and will not be communicated to all of the Deacons, but will be prayed for one-on-one by a Deacon, Prayer Leader or Pastor. If you would like prayer in person, over the phone, or over email at a different time, please contact the church office so that you can be put in contact with a Pastor or Deacon.
Stephen Ministry at FPC provides one-on-one, confidential, Christian care to members of our congregation and community. This care exists to supplement—not replace—the outstanding care provided by our Pastors and Deacons.
Since 1975, more than 600,000 people from more than 13,000 congregations and other organizations have been trained as Stephen Ministers. FPC, Waunakee is proud to be one of those congregations since 2017.
Stephen Ministers are lay congregation members trained to provide one-to-one care to those experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or relocation or any time of need.
Is God calling You to be His hands and feet?
We are always looking for caregivers. Training usually starts in the fall. It is a blessing and you will learn things that will help you in the ministry and in every day life. Email Susan Vergeront for more information.
Who are the Stephen Minister Caregivers and what do they do?
Who might need a Stephen Ministry caregiver?
Stephen Ministry caregivers cannot provide care to…
How do I find a Stephen Ministry caregiver for myself or someone I love?
- Identify a possible care receiver.
- Care enough to pass that name on to a Pastor, Deacon, member of the Stephen Ministry team, or the church office.
- Askif a potential care receiver would like information on Stephen Ministry. Give their name and phone number to Donna, or whoever is in the office and we will take it from there.
We need our congregation to be our eyes and ears for people who are suffering. Our hope is that you will reach out to them with the idea of a caregiver, and follow through by passing their name on to the office. You will be the hands and feet of Christ when you reach out!
