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 this Sunday 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.

Prayer Service During our bible class on prayer last fall, Pastor Stratman talked about how some of our churches have a monthly Prayer Service, a service focused on sharing and bringing concerns to the Lord in prayer.  The prayer service will be held on Friday, March 15th at 1:30pm. The service will also include a short Scripture reading and devotion. The ramp and elevator entrances will be open.

PTS Movie Night PTS invites all members of the St. Stephens and Good Shepherd parishes to our PTS Movie Night at St. Stephen’s gym on Friday, March 15 starting at 6:30 to watch the movie Wreck It Ralph 2. Popcorn and water will be provided. Bring blankets, pillows, and/ or chairs to sit on. Blankets must be placed under chairs to help protect the gym floor. This is a great fellowship opportunity to show others how amazing our school is, so feel free to invite some friends. Hope to see you there.

Lenten Midweek Services “Three Words of Truth” is the theme of our midweek worship for the 2019 Lenten Season. Each service focuses on important three-word phrases from the record of Jesus’ passion and resurrection: “Is it I?” “Love One Another.” “Watch and Pray.” “I Am He.”  “What Is Truth?” “Take Him Away!”  Our pastors will be preaching in rotation with the pastors of St. John’s in Juneau and Good Shepherd in Beaver Dam. Worship services will be at 1:30 and 6:30pm.

LENTEN SUPPERS!  Once again this year there will be a light supper in our church basement before our 6:30 services provided by some of our church organizations. This week our PTS group will be hosting a taco supper.  Serving time will run from 5:15-6:00 pm.

We hope that this will make it easier for our busy families to come for these special worship services as well as give many of us another opportunity to enjoy Christian fellowship with one another.
