Turkey Money
As has become the tradition at St. Stephen, we will again be collecting Turkey Money, starting November 13, to support the ministry of SWES, the Southwest Emergency Services, in their efforts to provide baskets of holiday meal fixings to those who could not otherwise gather around the traditional feast. Put donations in an envelope marked Turkey Money and place in the offering plate. The deadline to make this gift is December 11 in order that we might purchase the gift cards to cover the cost of turkeys before we deliver all our holiday meal donations the following Sunday.
2017 Offering Envelopes
Offering envelopes for 2017 will be available in the fellowship hall at the end of November. The envelopes are arranged in alphbetical order. If you can not find your box of envelopes, please, let the church office know or speak to Teresa Sparhawk or Pastor Sabatelli.

Luther's morning prayer
I give thanks to you, heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ dear Son, that you have protected me through the night from all harm and danger. I ask that you would also protect me today from sin and all evil, so that my life and actions may please you. Into your hands I commend myself: my body, my soul, and all that is mine. Let your holy angel be with me, so that the wicked foe may have no power over me.
