Terrific Tuesday Meal's
These Tuesday night dinners are at 6-6:30pm at St. Stephens on the  even months and at First Evangelical Presbyterian the odd months. All are welcome anytime to just come. There's no fee only bring yourselves! Contact Candace in Outreach at

What do you have to offer?
We here in Outreach are trying to put together a "Resource Parishioner List" What this is is a list of anyone who is willing to donate their services so that if we ever found another parishioner in need we'd be able to all work together to help one of our fellow parishioners. For Example, If I'm a Real Estate Agent and someone was needing advice on how to move to a cheaper location then I'd be willing to generously give some advice. Or if I'm a carpenter and someone needed an extra stair to make it easier to enter their house then you'd call me to see if I was willing to be generous with my time. Please contact Candace in Outreach if you have any ideas or you yourself would like to volunteer in this opportunity of generous stewardship to serve your fellow parishioners.
