Stephen Ministry

We all experience challenges in life—times when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend. This ministry provides one-on-one Christian caregiving by lay church members trained to be Christian caregivers. Stephen Ministers have gone through 50 hours of specialized training and are ready to provide emotional and spiritual care to persons going through difficult times and life changes.

Stephen Ministry is strictly confidential, available at no charge, and typically includes a weekly, hour-long meeting. To receive care from a Stephen Minister, please conact sm@fumccoppell.org.

Prayer Ministry

Rosenburg Prayer Chapel

Named in honor of Rev. John Rosenburg who served as Sr. Pastor of First Coppell for 9 years, the Rosenburg Prayer Chapel contains the stained glass window from the original church building and offers a quiet place to pray in the midst of the business of life. The Chapel is open 24 hours a day and located on the East side of our building (enter from the ramp entrance) just across from the Nursery.

Biggerstaff Prayer Garden

Named in honor of Rev. Jo Biggerstaff who served as Deacon at First Coppell for 8 years, the Biggerstaff Prayer Garden and Labyrinth are accessible 24 hours a day, providing a place to relax, renew and recharge with the sights and sounds of God’s beautiful creation all around.

Email Prayer Group
