SSLC Visitation Ministry
One of the most remarkable and enlightening passages in the Gospels concerns Jesus’ teaching about ministering to the poor, the sick and the needy: I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me... as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to Me. - Matthew 25:35 36. In response to Jesus’ words we are inviting anyone who is interested in being a part of the SSLC Visitation Ministry to meet SUNDAY, Sep. 23 at 4pm in the office conference room. Members currently serving on this ministry are also asked to attend. We will discuss more about this ministry and formulate a plan for visitation for the coming year. Hope to see YOU there!
September Love Offering: Music Program Scholarship Fund
The Music Program Scholarship was founded in 2010 as an incentive to encourage St. Stephen's youth to participate in our various choirs. The scholarship is available to all high school aged members who participate in one of our adult choirs or adult hand bells. Participants are required to be present for at least 75% of all rehearsals and performances, and they are awarded $50 for each year of participation. The full amount that each student earns will be collected and given to them upon their graduation from high school. Love offering donations in September will go towards continuing these scholarships into the future.
Principle Payment Reduction Lunches are held once a month September May. All proceeds go directly to retire the debt. Meals are ready for take-out or eat-in after the 8:30 & 11:00 services. Join your Church Council Members TODAY for: BBQ Ribs, Hash and Rice, Green Beans, Rolls, and Dessert. Come hungry, leave Happy and filled with the Holy Spirit!!
