History of St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church – 1945-1995

“You are the temple of the living God! You are building the house of God! God is dwelling in you and thus you are able to build this house of God. The individual responsibility does not cease with the completion of the building, for that is only the beginning. The speaker was the Rev. Robert Y. Johansson, President of the Green Bay District of the Superior Lutheran Conference, at the groundbreaking ceremony. He finished his speech saying, “If you build a physical plant without the spiritual, you have failed in the whole program. I hope in erecting my building, to follow the blueprint of God.”
