Stewards Living with Purpose

In the coming weeks, we will be offering a four-week stewardship emphasis titled Stewards Living with Purpose.  God’s purpose for us is to be in mission.  He wants us to partner with Him in His work “to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10).  God “desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4).  God could have converted all people or won the world on His own, but He chose to use us and invites us to join Him.  We are blessed with the privilege to be God’s instruments through which He works to share His life-saving Gospel with people we meet.  We can be focused on God’s purpose because we are  confident in His love, care and faithfulness.  When God works through us, we will experience joy and find meaning.

 


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.


Special Speaker Series– Rev. Dr. Lucas V. Woodford
Chaos or Courage? Reclaiming Sexual Virtue, Human Identity, & The Family
Saturday, September 24, 2022 9:00am-3:00pm
American life is being turned upside down & inside out. Our sexually explicit and transgendered culture threatens to strip the world of meaningful purpose and humanity of moral character. Cultural madness is all around and infects the digital media and entertainment of our day, leading our children astray. Many are wondering how to combat it all. This workshop explores ways to do that. Join us as we talk frankly about sexual virtue, care for those caught in the transgender trend, what it means to be a human being created in the image of God, and the hope that we have amid a chaotic world.

Registration: This event is free, but seats are limited, and registration is required. 
Register on our website, www.ststephenwaterford.org by Thursday, September 15th.

Lunch Options: There will be a 1-hour break for lunch. You may bring your own lunch or Jimmy John’s lunch boxes 
will be provided upon request for $12 each.  (Sandwich Options: Ham & Cheese, Roast Beef, or Turkey). 
Payment for lunch may be made on the day of the event.
