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.

St. Stephen’s Ladies Aid members will be sending cards of encouragement along with a monetary sum to our congregation’s college students, ministry students, and military men and women.  If you would like your son or daughter to receive this gift, please let the church office know by email to [email protected] in the next few weeks.  We will need their name and address.  Donations from the congregation will be collected Thurs., Feb. 7 and Sun., Feb. 10 and again on Thurs., Feb. 14 and Sun., Feb. 17.  The cards will be assembled and mailed by members of Ladies Aid on Monday, Feb. 18 (snow day, Feb. 19).  The amount they receive changes from year to year; the enjoyment they get from receiving a thoughtful message from their congregation never dims.

First Friday Communion: Our brief communion service for those who can “get out” but for whom being at a full service is difficult will be Friday, February 1st, at 1:30pm in the church.  Please use the ramp or elevator entrance.

2018 Offering Statements can be emailed or printed for anyone in need of the documentation for tax purposes.  Please sign up in the back of church or email [email protected] if a statement is needed.  All that signed up last week can pick their statements up in the sacristy.
