holiday meal fixings to those who could not otherwise gather around the traditional feast.

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.

A Message From Pastor Sabatelli,
St. Stephen is a small but friendly congregation that invites you to share in its
ministry and fellowship. We'd be delighted to welcome you to our 10:00 AM Service, with Holy
Communion, where all are invited to the Lord's table. We hope you will stay for our weekly
free brunch at 11:15 AM. All are welcome.
