Welcome Visitors If you are visiting today, we welcome you in our Risen and Living Savior, Jesus!

  • Please let us know you worshiped with us by signing our guest book in the entryway or a Care Card in your pew and drop it in the offering basket.
  • If visiting, please don’t feel obligated to give an offering. St. Stephen’s members express thankfulness to God through their voluntary offerings which then support the congregation’s work.
  • Introduce yourself to a Pastor, and worship with us again!

Holy Communion will be offered today in all services. You may register by card at any time or register in person in the sacristy. We ask all guests to please speak with a pastor before communing.

Kindergarten Round UpSt. Stephen’s will be hosting Kindergarten Round Up tomorrow night! February 10th  from 6pm-7pm.  It is a short meeting allowing parents the opportunity to get inside our classroom, meet the teacher and get to know other possible parents and students.  We will have a short presentation on how the kindergarten enrollment process works and what our school has to offer.   If you have a child ready for Kindergarten this upcoming 2020-2021 school year, feel free to stop by and collect some information, meet some friendly folks and maybe enjoy a cookie or two.

Getting married this next year?  The 2020  Marriage Seminar will be Saturday, February 22nd, from 9 am to 1 pm in the church basement.  Using the study-discussion guide “Building the Christian Home”, we will touch on God’s “blueprint” for marriage, the foundation and structure of a Christian marriage, finances in a family, and the growing family.  Please use the sign-up sheet in the back of church or call the office at 885-3309 to reserve your spot.  Signing up will help us have an adequate supply of study guides and refreshments.
