    During the summer, we will have a short Bible study Sundays after services,
    10:40 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. 

    Jesus gives the command to his church to go and make disciples of all nations. What does this look like? What is my role in this? How can I better share my faith with others? These questions can be hard to answer. Our new topic for Bible Class will dive into the topic of evangelism, sharing Jesus with others. We will study God’s command to us, as we carry it out as a church and in our personal lives. Tips will also be given as to how to better witness our faith to others.

    PTS Cleaning Day is coming up this Saturday, August 21st! We will start at 9:00am and clean until 1:00pm. Any members of our church or school are invited to participate and help. You may come at 9am and stay for an hour or stay for the entire duration – it’s up to you! The church ramp door and school parking lot doors will be open and we will all meet in the church basement to designate direction. Any and all help is welcome and appreciated. Cleaning supplies are provided but if you have your favorite bucket or pail to bring, please do so. Any questions or just want to know more? Send Emily McFarlane (mom of 2nd grader and Kindergartener) a text or call (920) 344-0774.  Let’s get the school ready for our children!

    Thrivent Choice Program:  On August 6th, the Church Thrivent gift for the Restoration Fund was $242.00.  Thank you to St. Stephen’s members / Thrivent clients who designated St. Stephen’s Church for Choice Dollars.

    Senior Choir begins rehearsal Thursday, August 19th, at 7:00pm after the worship service. We meet in the band/choir room of the school. If you are a confirmed member and love to serve your Savior through song, we would be happy to see you join us. Bring a friend and come to the first practice to learn more about what’s happening this year.

    Hospital Reminder Your pastors love to bring God’s comforting Word to our hospitalized members!  All hospitals however, cannot let the church office know unless you call us or ask them to call us. Please do not hesitate to call.

    St. Stephen’s Church Picnic Our church picnic will resume this year! Join us on Sunday, August 29, from noon-4:00 PM, at Lakeview Park for a time of fellowship, games, and food. Meat and drinks will be provided. We ask that everyone please bring a dish to pass and lawn chairs.
    We have plenty of activities planned. There will be bingo with prizes, a bounce house for the kids, and lawn games set out. Make plans to join us! If inclement weather happens on that day, we will move the picnic to the church basement. We will also be welcoming our new teachers, Mr. & Mrs. Joshua and Kendra Barnett. Sign up to lend a hand with the many different activities. Go to or call the church office at 920-885-3309.
