Reception for Brian and Rhimi Elliott - Sept. 16th
Please join us in honoring and saying farewell to Brian and Rhimi Elliott, September 16th, after the 10:30 service, in the Parish hall for a light reception. After their many years as parishioners and all the ways they have served St Stephens, we are sad to see them go and bless them as they make their new move to Ruckersville, VA. If you can’t make it to the reception and want to offer a card or note for them, feel free to drop it off at the office before the 16th and we will give it to them.
Parish Picnic - Sunday, September 23
All parish members, family, and friends are invited for a kid friendly, fun afternoon of lunch and games after the 10:30 church service. We plan to be outside, weather permitting. Main dish and beverages are provided. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
