If you are vacationing nowhere near civilization, and no sister churches are near, a hymnal and Bible or devotion book are all you need to have family worship wherever you are (and not just on Sunday!).

Dear Members of St. Stephen’s,

Thank you for the fellowship reception given in honor of our 40 years in the teaching ministry. It is by God’s grace that we have had the privilege of teaching God’s little lambs. In humble gratitude, thank you for all the heartfelt prayers offered for us and kind thoughts, generous gifts, and cards shared with us.

Philippians 1:3 expresses our thoughts, “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, … pray with joy because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now, … that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

                                                In Christ’s service,

                                                Vicki Hensler and Renee Geiger
