The Last Week in July: Pentecost 9

Dear St. Stephen’s church family,

Love and blessings in Christ. “I pray that out of his glorious riches, God may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts, through faith.” -Ephesians 3:16-17

You are welcome to stop by my backyard tomorrow, Sunday, July 25th, for fellowship and conversation, following the 10:30 am service. (If you like you may bring some bread, or fish, in honour of the miracle found in the gospel tomorrow! 😊)

We continue to hold in person services weekly on Sundays at 8:30 and 10:30. We are sanitizing, washing hands, masking and being careful and caring of one another. 

A sermon is recorded weekly and posted on Soundcloud. There is a link on this webpage, or you can find it on our facebook page. 

Parish Cycle of Prayer:

Monday: Please continue to pray, dear parish family, for Quinlyn and family. 

Tuesday: We pray for Friday M, for healing and strength. We pray for the whole family, for the peace that passes understanding.

Wednesday: We pray for our Confirmands: Jessie, Lo, Kaynan, Jillian and Wesley. We pray for the service of Confirmation on October 10th, that the Holy Spirit might confirm in these young people the faith and promises made on their behalf at their baptism. 

Thursday: for Don and Donna and family 

Friday: for the St. Stephen’s Malayalam congregation worshipping on Sunday evenings,  and the leadership of the Rev. Sunil Steephen.

In Christ’s abundant and self offering love,

Amy <><
