Giving Thanks

November 27, 2019

 We give thanks for:

  • Those who worship with us on Sunday morning

  • Those who volunteer at the food pantry

  • Those who work to keep things running at St. Stephen's: Kanchalee, Oksana, Bonnie, Armand, Tony, Pastor Jason

  • Those who volunteer and support activities such as Art Loop, Peace Week, Empty Bowl Dinner, Hilltop backpacks/Thanksgiving boxes/Christmas presents, concert series

  • Those who volunteer for worship: altar guild, service assistants, choir

  • Those who volunteer to lead St. Stephen's: council, stewardship team, finance team, LEAD team, mutual ministry team, property team

  • Those who bring food for the food pantry

  • Those in the community who support the work of St. Stephen's

  • Those whom we inadvertently overlook, but have a role in life and work of St. Stephen's 

To paraphrase a friend: If no one has told you today that you are loved: God loves you, and so does St. Stephen's.

We also give thanks for the upcoming season of Advent, a time to step back from the hustle and bustle of the world around us, and prepare for the coming of Christ. On December 1 we will light the first candle on the Advent wreath. Advent Vespers will be offered on December 4 and 11 with a Taize-style contemplative service beginning at 6:30 pm. On December 18 we will have a hymn/carol sing, also at 6:30. This is a great opportunity to invite your friends to join you for a time of quiet in this hectic season.
