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.

  • Fall Bible Study “God’s Grace Learned Through Hard Lessons”. This study will be an overview of the book of Numbers. When hard times come, we can easily give up and feel like God is not with us. However, we will see the rich grace of God given to his people even during very difficult times. We will meet Mondays at 7:00pm and Wednesdays at 11:00am. All are welcome!

St. Stephen’s OWLS will meet for their final meeting and program of the year on Tuesday, November. 12th.  A potluck dinner will be held at 12 noon in the church basement.  The program for the day will be a narrative of Anna Plocher, who was the wife of Johannes Plocher, the first missionary to the Apache people in the 1890’s All members of St. Stephen’s are welcome to join in this interesting program.    We look forward to having you join us.

Advent by Candlelight 2019  We are looking for table hostesses for the Advent by Candlelight program, which will be held Sunday, Dec. 8th.  Table hostesses decorate a table and serve dessert and coffee to their guests before the program begins.  Hostesses are a very special part of the program as they help prepare the hearts of their guests for the Advent season.  Join us in hosting the ladies of our congregation and your friends and relatives for another wonderful program.  There are sign-up sheets at both church entrances.
