Memorial Garden

Plans are under way to update the landscape for the Memorial Garden. Dave Fleming & Tim Miller are leading this project. Pastor Dale & Betty have been included in the planning process. The Board of Directors has reviewed the plans as well. Updates include painting the back wall, adding a paver walkway, moving irrigation, and adding shrubs, flowers, stones, mulch, and a bench.  We will be selling engraved bricks as a fundraiser for this project. Anyone will be able to donate to the project by purchasing a brick in memory or honor of someone or your family name.  Stay tuned for more information as the process moves forward.

 Church Worker Scholarship Fund

Do you know that St. Stephen has a Scholarship Fund established specifically for the education of church workers? We would like to add more money to this fund to encourage people who may be in need of a scholarship to reach their goal of becoming a church worker. This could include a preschool administrator, a teacher in a parochial school, a music director, a deacon or deaconess, or a pastor. Please support this ministry by making an offering to St. Stephen Lutheran Church and earmarking it for the Church Worker Scholarship Fund. 

Application forms will be available in the church office.
