Call Committee Update:
Sunday, August 28 at 10:00 am
Do we have a Mission Statement? If so, how does it guide and govern our work together? What is your congregation excited about right now? List three ways the community in which you are located has been challenged by change or transition in the last five years...
These and dozens of other questions have been the topic of many meetings over the summer. The work of the Call Commit-tee includes creating an accurate picture of the congregation, our history, our dreams, our context. Anticipating submitting our “Ministry Site Profile” in August, come to hear what questions were difficult to fill out and how St. Stephen’s will be presented to candidates. Keep the Call Committee in your prayers as they prepare to enter the interview phase, and contact them with your hopes and dreams for ministry at St. Stephen’s! They are Steve Sullivan, Luke Martz, Kat Pluff, Connie Kilmark, Ken Koscik, Mari Mitchell, and Jon Robelia.

Yoga: Monday and Wednesday!
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.

More Repacking Tools?
Conversation Sunday, August 21, 10:30 am
Were you unable to attend the Repacking event on July 17th? If you attended, did you have questions which time did not permit us to address? While one-to-one conversations continue in our community, there was some healing power we experienced by exploring our feelings and questions together. On August 21, you are invited to review the taped presentation on the topic of Forgiveness offered by Mae Jean Zelle at the event in July. Conversation will follow. Plan your worship schedule accordingly, grab a cup of coffee, and come!

Blessing of the Backpacks
Sunday, September 11th
School will already be in full swing, but don’t let that stop you from bringing your backpack into church on Sunday, the 11th, for a blessing! Parents—this is a great opportunity for you to help your children understand that God is with them no matter where they are! At home, at school, on the sports field, at daycare, riding the bus, and even at church! J We’ll also demonstrate one (or maybe more!) ways to bless each other each day as you leave the house for your daily activities. Mark your calendars to be there. Let the congregation bless you and send you forth into a new school year, feeling the love and support from your church family!
