Summer Worship Schedule
Sundays Beginning May 24
Pentecost is a festival 50 days after Easter Sunday, marking
the story in Acts 2 when the Holy Spirit came rushing into
the room. That spirited festival falls on May 24 this year,
which is also Memorial Day weekend. At that point, we will
switch to our summer worship schedules. Until Labor Day
weekend, we will switch to two worship services: 9:00 in the
sanctuary with organ and hymns; 10:30 in Agape Place with
Steadfast and Christian rock.
Wednesdays: New Summer
Family-Oriented, Kid-Friendly, Midweek Worship
We know summer schedules fill
up quickly, so we’re eager to offer a new opportunity for
families to worship over the summer. Our new Wednesday
Family Fun Worship (WFFW!) will be a family-friendly,
kid-engaging service (but is also available for anybody who
can’t be here on the weekend)!
Vacation Bible School
With the introduction of this new service, we’re also making
adjustments to our popular Vacation Bible School program.
VBS this year will be three days, and it will concludewith
the start of WFFW! We’ll still have our great afternoon
activities Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday June 22, 23, and
24. On Wednesday, we’ll finish VBS at 5:30 and begin WFFW!
More details and invitations to come! For now, mark your
calendars, register your child, and let us know if you can
for kids’ sermon pull-out activities in June, and see the
information about Wednesday Family Fun Worship in the
"Summer Worship" article above.
Family Summer Camping Trip

we’re changing it up this year! Make your reservations TODAY to join other
St. Stephen’s families in or near the “purple” section of Smokey Hollow
Campground, near Lodi. Call 608-635-4806. Ask Paige with Q’s.
Boundary Waters, Here We Come
July 23-July 28
Concerned about those lakes icing over? Would you like to think of the beach
and swimming? Mark your calendars for the Boundary Waters! Our dates are
July 23-July 28. A bit different schedule than other years, we’ll leave
before the weekend to make the most of vacation time. We’re also waiting
until students are back from the ELCA National Youth Gathering. Cost is
about $400. Youth and adult, members or not are welcome. Trip includes
rental of all gear and meals for 5 days/4 nights of paddling in the
wilderness! Sign up today with $100 deposit. Talk to Nick with questions.
a.m.-12:00 p.m. & 1:00-5:00
