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. We ask all guests to please speak with a pastor before communing.

Gift We acknowledge with thanks, a gift of $100 for the restoration fund, given by Jeffrey & Sheila Schlegel, in observance of their

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!).
