Foundation Scholarships
Applications Due April 30
St. Stephen’s Foundation trustees announce the availability of college scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year.
The Foundation encourages qualifying students to apply if they plan to seek, or are currently seeking, general undergraduate
degrees and undergraduate degrees in agriculture, life sciences or medical fields. Students who previously
applied and/or received scholarships, may reapply. Application packets are available in the church office. Letters from references are required, so be sure to get your packet early enough to allow ample time to complete it. To be considered, applicants must ensure that completed forms are returned to the church office no later than Thursday, April 30. While anyone who will enroll in college or technical school for the 2015-16 academic year may apply, trustees especially encourage members of St. Stephen’s to consider filling out an application.

Church Yard Clean-Up
We have scheduled April 25 9:00—l:00, to clean-up the church yard. We are asking for volunteers to help the Building & Grounds Committee. Even if you can only spare part of that time, it will help. We will meet in the back lot near the garage. If you have rakes, shovels and brooms, please bring them. If it rains on the 25th, we will try again on May 2nd.

Community Gardens
We’re getting ready for another growing season together, and opening day is April 25.  At this point, we have a few 10’x10’ gardening plots still available.  Contact the office or Steve Esser for registration info.
