Widow's Support Group
The Widow's Support Group is a small group of women from Stonepile that get together once a month for lunch. We go to different restaurants & just have a good time enjoying one another's company. Each of us share a common loss but we all support one another on this journey. Luncheons are currently held the third Monday of each month at 11:30 AM.
United Methodist Women
The organized unit of United Methodist Women is a community of women whose purpose is to know God & to experience freedom as a whole person through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; & to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church. Membership is open to any woman who indicates her desire to belong & to participate in the global mission of the Church through United Methodist Women. The group usually meets the first Tuesday of each month at 7 PM with exception to special events & holidays.
Combined Charge Activities
The Bethlehem Stonepile/St. Paul's Springvale Charge currently has a Stephen Ministry team which consists of two Stephen Leaders & four Stephen Ministers. Stephen Ministers are a group of lay Christians who feel called to help others & who complete the 50 hour training course. Stephen Ministry is meant to support the ministry of the pastor, not replace it. The pastor remains the initial contact for all parishioners in need, but Stephen Ministers may provide the follow-up care which is sometimes necessary following a major life event. If you would like more information about the Stephen Ministry program contact Darla Holtzapple or Anita Brenneman through the church office at 244-9540. If you are in need of a Stephen Minister, contact the church office or see the pastor.
Sunshine Ministry/College Ministry
Adult Bible Study
Usually 6 weeks in length and offered in the Spring and Fall of each year. Group meets once a week and class is offered during the day from 9:30—10:30 AM or in the evening from 7-8:00 PM to accommodate different schedules.
The Sunshine Ministry/College Ministry is an additional outreach of the churches to folks who can’t make it to church on a regular basis. Regular contact is made with these individuals to keep them in the loop with church happenings. If you would like more information on this ministry contact the church office at 244-9540.
Calling all ladies. Would you like to learn more of what God wants for us? How to get your prayers answered? How to be a prayer warrior for our families? Strength is a Bible study geared for women of all ages who want to journey through life together. We will meet at Stonepile church on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:30 PM. Please mark your calendars and plan on journeying through life with us. If you have any questions, please see Sue Beck, Deb Burke or Christina Barshinger.
