    Big Bear AwardSt. Stephen’s was surprised and honored to receive the Big Bear award at synod assembly this year. The World Hunger committee said this: Each year at the Northern Great Lakes Synod Assembly a Big Bear Award is given to a congregation that has made an exceptional effort in raising funds and awareness for World Hunger. This year the Big Guy goes to St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church which has done Big Things for the Hunger effort this year. During the February food drive in Conference 5, they “smoked” the rest of the conference by collecting an average of 8 food items per baptized member. This was by far, the best effort in the Conference and a sign of their commitment to “Feed the Hungry” A Big Bear for a Big Effort and worthy of our recognition.
