Bible Studies

  • Monday / Wednesday Bible Study Monday / Wednesday Study will recess for the Summer months, to resume after Labor Day.  Be sure to take advantage of the Sunday study, which will continue through the Summer.
  • Sunday Bible Class – “Pray, Praise, and Give Thanks: Favorite Psalms of God’s People”
    This Bible study meets on Sunday mornings at 9:10 in the church basement.  “Pray, Praise, and Give Thanks:  Favorite Psalms of God’s People” is a study of nine of the best known and loved Psalms.  Please join us!  Coffee, juice, and treats are served, too!

Spirit Pump Support  Jerry’s Automotive/BP, 700 N Spring St.  (Across from Beaver Dam Food Pride) has a Spirit pump.  When patrons use this pump for gas, Jerry’s donates 2 cents per gallon to a school in Beaver Dam.  The owners of Jerry’s have decided to give the proceeds from this pump to St. Stephen’s school during the month of MAY.  Please consider filling your gas tank in the month of May at Jerry’s at the Spirit pump.

A New Bible Information Class is planned for this summer, beginning June 13th at either 11:00am or 6:30pm.  This is a 14-15 session study of Bible teachings; a way to join our congregation or a great review of the truths you may have learned in Catechism Class many years ago.  Speak with one of the Pastors if you are interested or know someone who might be.
