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 next week in all services. You may register by card at any time.

               Gospel Outreach Opportunities This Summer

Be a greeter in the WELS Info Booth at the Dodge County Fair!

The fair runs August 14-18 this year.  Spend a couple hours at the booth with fellow believers to greet passers-by and to share Christian literature and information about our area WELS churches. You don’t have to be a doctor of theology, just a smiling believer who can say, “Jesus takes my sins away and will take me to heaven someday!” A schedule/sign-up sheet is on the entryway table, along with a “tip sheet” for volunteers in case you have questions.

Unified Budget Due to the concern that this concept perhaps hadn’t been well enough explained to the entire membership, the meeting was “recessed” to be reconvened, today, Sunday, August 4 at 10:45 A.M., at which time a vote on the proposal will take place.  Printed information on the unified budget concept is being made available.  Please ask questions of our Church Council members if you have them, and share your thoughts with them.  Voting members, please attend!

Vacation Bible School Thank You to all the volunteers who donated their time and talents this last week at VBS.  Our congregation is so blessed to be able to outreach this way and a huge thank you to the people who donated time, money, supplies, and prayers.  We had over 58 children attend this year.  For the members who put signs up in their yards, please return to the office during office hours or bring to church and leave where you picked them up.

Call for Singers and Musicians Our Christian Education Sunday will be August 25 with installations of new teachers at the 9:30 a.m. service. With all the events of this Summer, (Vanderhoofs leaving, Dorns staying, Mrs. Brace returning, temporary Call filled, windows and roof paid for, and many more) let’s make it a festival service. Practice will be Thursdays after worship. We’ll need some singers for Thursday and Sunday 7:30, but our main ‘performance’ will be Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Email or talk to Pastor Stratman if you would like to sing! (Anybody play guitar? We can use your gifts too!)
