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 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 ( if you have any questions, or sign-up on our Facebook page.
