Thursday Morning Bible Study - Kaffee Klatsch
From 10-11:15 a.m. every Thursday, except on Chicken Luncheon days, a group of us meets in one of our homes to read, study, argue, and enjoy each other's company. We follow the Synthesis CE, and we make an effort to understand the upcoming Bible readings in the context of 2000 years ago as well as today. It is always interesting, educational, and enjoyable. If you would like to become part of this, or start your own group, call Pat Uibel at (609) 747-1619.
St. Stephen's Choir is an open group of people who enjoy singing. Our responsibility is to lead the 10 a.m. service each Sunday as well as provide special music. We also lead special services during the Easter and Christmas seasons. Because of busy schedules, we rehearse on Sunday mornings right after the 10:00 service. The members of choir are looking forward to welcoming new members. Contact person: Dori Schubert at (609) 387-0597.
Director: Dori Schubert
Practices: Every Sunday after the 10:00 a.m. Service

The Ushers are an important part of the services at St. Stephens'. They keep people informed by handing out the service bulletin as people arrive and they usually present the Bread and Wine at the Offertory and also collect and present the Offering.
Organizer: David Martin
The acolytes of St. Stephen's assist the Rector and lead the congregation at Sunday and some weekday services. Acolytes serve on a rotating roster. Training sessions and meetings are held as needed. Participation is open to anyone who is at least in the fourth grade. The ministry of the acolytes is celebrated on a Sunday in the middle of January each year.

At present, the Altar Guild is a group of women who make sure church is ready for Sunday services, weddings, funerals, and decorated for holidays. We meet at least four times a year to take suggestions, answer questions, and make sure there are no problems. If there is anyone interested in joining, please call the Church Office at (609) 387-0169.
Greeters are a special group as they are the first person to speak to anyone entering the church regardless if that person is a newcomer or an regular attendee. Everyone is met with a smile, an outstretched hand and a warm welcome.
Organizer: Pat Uibel
