Synod Assembly


This year Synod Assembly will be virtual and take place Thursday, April 29th - Saturday, May 2nd. Perhaps you have been curious what happens at these annual meetings, but haven't been able to travel or attend as a guest for other reasons. This is a great year to tune in, and we have the capacity to include guest viewing along our voting members. Check out the schedule here.


Let Pastor Mandy know if you are interested in attending all or portions of this year's assembly.


Bible Study


Due to scheduling issues, Bible Study is on hiatus until May 5th/6th.


Faith Formation


Due to scheduling issues, Faith Formation is on hold until 5/16. Links for videos and reflection questions will be sent directly to participants later this week. If you do not regularly attend Faith Formation but would like to engage in conversation with the group in May and would like those links, please let Pastor Mandy know.


Caring for Community: Diaper Drive


Along with food, the food pantry at Good Shepherd also provides personal care items for our neighbors in need. St. Stephen's is participating by collecting diapers and baby wipes to help fill the personal care needs through the month of May.


Sizes most in need are 2-5.


Drop off times at the church will begin the week of May 3rd, or contact Theresa Lubben to arrange for drop off time. Please contact Theresa with any questions.


Caring for one another:


One of the great joys of worship on Zoom is seeing all of the fury, feathered, and scaly companions of our congregation. One of these companions, Jetta and her family, are in need of help. Two weeks ago Jetta injured her hind leg and is in need of surgery. Stephanie and Julie have shared what Jetta (their black lab) means to them and are asking for support in the form of prayer and donation to help this surgery happen. If you are in a place to lend a hand, please click the link below. Thank you for your generosity in helping one of our own.

Special Congregational Meeting – Sunday, March 14th following worship


In late December, congress passed the second round of Covid relief. Part of this relief was additional funding for the Payment Protection Program (PPP) and the opportunity for organizations that received a PPP loan in the late spring to apply for an additional loan. These loans are forgiven so long as they are used by a certain date and used specifically for payroll, mortgage reduction, and utilities. Essentially this loan becomes a grant. St. Stephen’s received one of these loans in early summer and utilized it within the time frame specified and will have that loan forgiven. With this second round of loans and additional funding, we were encouraged to apply and have been approved for a second PPP loan. Because of the amount and the way that this program works as a forgivable loan if used for payroll, mortgage reduction and utilities, we need to agree to receive this loan as a congregation.


We will hold a congregational meeting on Sunday, March 14, 2021 immediately following worship to vote to receive a second Payment Protection Program Loan.


If you have any questions please reach out to Pastor Mandy, Russ Skillings – Council President, or Curt Williams – Council Parliamentarian.

Many members of our congregation have received one or both of their Covid-19 vaccines. This is delightful and hope-filled news!


The vaccines are quite exciting too! For the first time vaccines are helping our bodies build antibodies by using messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA)! For scientists and science enthusiasts this is exciting news. This video helps to explain how it works.


Getting vaccinated when we are able helps to protect ourselves from the virus, and studies are showing that it also reduces the risk that we will spread it to others. However, until we reach a level where nearly all have had the vaccine, community spread is still possible. So we continue to wear our masks, and prioritize safe gatherings - small numbers, virtual whenever possible - to keep one another safe, healthy, and whole.


Thanks to Tammy Wollbrinck for sharing this and helping us to understand what it means to be a vaccinated community!
