and swimming? Mark your calendars for the Boundary Waters! Our dates are
July 31-August 5. 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! If you have route preferences, talk to Pastor Nick now!
Family Fellowship Time
Sundays at 9:35 a.m.
The Children and Families Ministry
Team would like to invite you to join us for a Family
Fellowship Time each Sunday from 9:35 to 9:55 a.m. Drop the
kids off at Sunday School and then grab a quick cup of
coffee, a snack, and a short conversation before heading
into the 10:00 Worship Service. It’s a great way to get to
know other St. Stephen’s parents and make some great
connections at a time that you’re probably already here
anyway. Call it Multitasking. Call it Networking. Or just
call it Caffeine and Conversation. But whatever you call it,
please join us!
Yoga: Monday and
Join us for Yoga Mondays at 7:00 pm and
Wednesdays at 10:30 am. Suggested donation is $10. Join in stretching, flexing, relaxing, and feeling good.
