Let's be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world and live out God's love for all of his children.
God has blessed each one of us with special talents and gifts and has called each one of us to serve and to serve others. Having the opportunity to exercise these spiritual gifts and talents at church, not only deepens our relationship with Jesus, but also opens our hearts and fulfills a need within our community. There are many ways to get involved at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church and in our community. Right now, our outreach projects include our partnership with the Farview Presbyterian food pantry collecting and donating eggs for their monthly distribution, the collection of toiletry items for SafeNet and the City Mission for Mother's Day and Father's Day, and Adopt-a-Wish List.
Outreach Update August 26, 2020
We have such a generous parish! This summer we donated personal care items to SafeNet and to the City Mission, we helped the Fairview School Foundation feed families in need while supporting Fairview food businesses at the same time, we donated food vouchers to the Girard food pantry, and we have donated almost 300 dozen eggs to the Fairview Presbyterian food pantry! We will be continuing our monthly egg collection for the Fairview Presbyterian food pantry. OUR NEXT EGG COLLECTION WILL BE FRIDAY, SEPT. 11 FROM 9-10AM IN THE ST. STEPHEN’S PARKING LOT. In addition to eggs, the food pantry is in need of personal care items - specifically shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste. So if you are able to donate any of these items in addition to, or in place of eggs, please do so.
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in ts various forms." -1 Peter 4:10
