On this beautiful Sunday morning, St Stephen Lutheran Members and Friends gathered for the first outdoor service of the season. Everyone enjoyed this time of worship, singing, praying and praising. The weather was humid but lovely in the shade. We were joined in service by a pair of red tail hawks that sat up on the top of the church. Pastor Rheanna's sermon was thought provoking and well presented on a difficult topic. God is on the move, please check out the replay video below.
Each Spring we have an event to clean up the property at the front of the church. The work includes weeding, trimming bushes, and spreading mulch – no experience necessary.
We will meet this Saturday, June 17 for this year’s” Beautify the Campus” event. We will gather starting at 8:30 for a simple breakfast and coffee and start work about 9:00. We will finish by 11:30.. If you can attend and have not signed up, please let Frank Dutt know by email to frankd414@verizon,net.
We have Thrivent funding to cover the cost of food and most of the mulch.
