EQUIPPING THE SAINTS In Ephesians 4, Paul talks about pastors and other leaders as gifts God has given the church. Sunday Brother Tommy spoke about UMW Celebrates their New Members! our gifts and how we can serve the Lord through our church work. God has given the church "to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ." Stephen Ministry has given us an organ- ized way to equip those gifted for caring ministries so they can build up the body of Christ by providing Christian care and support to those experi- encing a difficult time. Many of you have loved ones who have been hospi- talized or are home recovering. Sometimes you need a listening ear.
