Caring Ministries

There are many ways to stay active and involved in the community and ministry as an adult and through your older ages.

If you are interested in participating in any of these groups, please contact
Brad Mather at 837-5554, ext. 105 or email: brad@sunprairieumc.org

Centering Prayer

Practice prayer “centered entirely on the presence of God.” A quiet, contemplative time on the first and third Tuesday of each month at the Wesley House at 6:30 pm.

Community Worship

We lead devotional services at The Lighthouse, Prairie Garden, Brookdale, Kindred Hearts and Colonial View Apartments during the second week of each month.

Dining Out Group

Anyone who enjoys the company of others while enjoying a good meal is welcome! We’ll gather at a restaurant once a month. The agenda is eating with conversation … a great time!

Friendly Visitors

A group of people in our congregation make a “once-a-month” visit to elderly and/or shut in members. A friendly visit to help those who find it difficult to participate in our regular activities to still feel connected to the church.

Stephen Ministry

A Stephen Minister is Christian layperson who has significant training to be a nonjudgmental listener. They are not a therapist or counselor.  The care receiver must be at least 18 years old, but need not be a member of Sun Prairie United Methodist Church. Stephen Ministers and care receivers will always be of the same gender. Meetings of Stephen Minister & Care Receiver are strictly one-to-one and can last for weeks or years, depending upon the need. Usually the meetings occur weekly, for one hour and are held at a location and time convenient to both parties.  These meetings are strictly confidential.

If you are hurting there is a person who wants to listen to you – a person who realizes it can take a considerable amount of time for the hurt to diminish. A Stephen Minister is that person. He or she is a trained Christian listener who is willing and ready to walk the journey with you.

To discuss having a Stephen Minister, contact Pastor Jenny or any of our Stephen Leaders: Pat Harper, Bonnie Kott, Frank Gaylord, George Kaminski, Dave Heinle, Jane Daniels or Mike McGaffin.

XYZ (eXtra Years of Zest)

XYZ, our fellowship group for retired folks, meets every third Tuesday of the month. Includes a programming time and lunch.
