What's Happening at St. Stephen's?
Maybe you missed a sermon... Maybe you need to know if it's your Sunday to serve... Maybe you're looking for a special service or an opportunity for your family to fellowship with your church family... Or maybe you want to get caught up with the good stuff in this month's Newsletter... You're in the right place!
Snapshot of What's Coming Up:
Sunday, September 23: Stewardship Sunday. Kick-off of pledge campaign.
Thursday, September 27th a 5:30 pm: Worship Ministers Meeting and Potluck
As we take part in leading worship, it is always good to pause, in fellowship, and take some intentional time with our ministries and with the many others who share them. You are invited to a gathering of fellow worship ministers on Thursday, September 27. We’ll start at 5:30 with a potluck, and then we’ll move into groups (lectors, ushers/greeters, Eucharistic Ministers...and yes, there are loads of you who are in several of these groups) and simply have some time to review those ministries with a leader and ask questions if we have any. We may even have time to schedule ourselves into the next quarter!
Please sign up on the clipboard in Miller Hall to bring either a main dish, salad, or dessert to share. I hope to see you there!

An Opportunity to Take Note Of:
"In the Footsteps of the Celtic Saints: A Pilgrimage to Wales and Ireland's Ancient East" - led by Teresa DiBiase and Dr. Frank Shirbroun (from St. Augustine's in Freeland), May 18-30, 2019. We invite you to journey to the sacred landscapes of Wales and Ireland's Ancient East, following in the footsteps of our Celtic forebears who nourished the seed of Christianity there. We will be pilgrims rather than tourists: our aim is not merely to see the sights but to open ourselves to the possibility of transformation. As pilgrims, we will take time for worship, prayer, and reflection; for food and fellowship and laughter; for exploration and for rest. If this invitation appeals to your sense of where you are in your own spiritual journey, join us on this pilgrimage. Among other places, we will visit holy sites in St. David's, Pennant Melangell, and the Llynn Peninsula, Wales, and Kildare, Clonmacnoise, New Grange and Glendalough, Ireland. For more information about this, our fifth pilgrimage, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
