Vacation Bible School 2016
It’s time to invite, to register, and to sign up to
help us provide a fun learning opportunity for children this
summer at St. Stephen’s. Before swim lessons, before ball
games, we hope you’ll bring your children, your neighbor’s
children, your grandchildren and yourself for a morning in
the comfortable air-conditioned spaces around this building
from 9:00 am-Noon. We’re going to use a rotation model with
fun mini-workshops including: art, music, outdoor games,
science experiments, snacks, and more! Sign-Up online at
www.signupgenius.com/tabs/1357EDD0FA5C53-ststephens or put
your name on the bulletin board outside the Sanctuary. Talk
with Mary Tygum or Jessica Sullivan about how they are
helping and how you might join them!

Calling all Singers!
We have identified three opportunities for you to
join together as a choir to enhance, beautify and lead our
worship during these summer months: July 24, and
August 28. In each case, we will meet for a brief rehearsal
at 8:00 am, and sing at the 9:00 service. Please consider
joining us, especially if you are typically unable to commit
to the weekly choir rehearsal schedule! Singers of all ages
are welcome, and families are encouraged to attend together.
No choir robes, no auditions, no lengthy commitments. Please
speak to Rebecca (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any
questions, or sign-up on our Facebook page.
