Friends, we've been reaping a harvest of soul-stirring activities this month at St. Stephen United Methodist Church. And we're not done yet!
Immediately after worship this Sunday, Chair Tom Zolnerwich will bring a report from the Finance Committee on the state of St. Stephen's income and expenses. Copies of the report and the committee's suggestions for the coming year were emailed to members previously. If possible, please print out your report and bring the copy with you to the meeting to save on church expenses. We'll be voting on our budget for next year, so please make every effort to attend.
We have two more important observances coming up.
Then we'll have our annual Music Appreciation Sunday on Nov. 6. Music forms a key part of St. Stephen's ministry through our Choir and Elation! Youth Drama Choir, plus the children's ensembles we have from time to time.
The Worship Committee, along with our staff team of Rev. Nancy DeStefano, choir director Ryan Forkner, and accompanist Michael Carr, have done lots of work preparing these observances, so let's honor their efforts and join in the celebrations!
