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 Wednesday in both services and next 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.

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.

Lent begins Ash Wednesday, March 6. The Ash Wednesday service will be a service of Holy Communion.

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 Teens group will be hosting a spaghetti and meatball meal.  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.
