Trunk or Treat!!!

Tomorrow marks one of the high spots of the year for St. Stephen's with our Trunk or Treat evening. We begin with our All Hallow's Eve service at 5 p.m. which features knock-knock jokes, a spooky story, and lots of suprises. Then at 6 p.m. we move to the parking lots where our young people go from Trunk to Trunk collecting treats. After that, grab a hotdog or burger and come back to the Parish Hall for the awarding of "Best Trunk", "Funniest Trunk", etc. . . A fun event for all!

Bring In Your Books!!!

Here at St. Stephen's Church we are helping Rachel and Erica (Junior Girl Scout Troop number 532) collect gently used or new books for toddlers to twelve years old. They will donate these books to a Daycare Center in Spring Valley to help send books home with each child to promote reading in thier households. It would be great if you help us collect books for these girls to donate. There is a collection box in the Narthex.
