  • On April 12, St. Stephen’s celebrated a “Birthday Bash” before the service at coffee time.  The event marked a special year plus effort to reduce the building fund debt with birthday age donations by members which were anonymously matched.  This endeavor has significantly reduced debt principal.  Thank you to all who participated. Click here to view photo gallery
