Volunteer Opportunities

Kids themselves are great teachers. But the quality of their spiritual development and comfort to explore their faith should be guided by the congregation. We are searching for friendly and reliable adults to join our Sunday School / Messy Church team. If you like to be creative and enjoy influencing the hearts and minds of children towards Jesus, we would ask that you prayerfully consider volunteering in this role at Saint Stephens. Don’t feel intimidated! The curriculum is easy to follow. And although teaching is a vital work of shepherding, it does not stand on its own. Our children will be supported by the Christian Education Director and the pastor too. You won’t have to go it alone! God is calling. The spirit is leading. And we’ll support one another. If interested, please click on the link above and fill out our volunteer application. If you are a good fit, we will also need to run a background check.

Creating Community

None of us live our lives in isolation. People need people. We need each other. 

As Christians, we value time spent with one another. We like to share the stories of our faith with one another, to worship together, to build each other up, to lift one another up in prayer, to build community. That community is an integral part of who we are here at Saint Stephens.

We build community, not only with one another as fellow Christians, but with the people around us, people who may or may not belong to Saint Stephens. Much of our energy here is directed toward outreach and building community . . . through our Dinner @ Five community meal every Monday evening . . . through our support of the local Food Pantry . . . through providing meals for area youth filling backpacks during the school year and free Taco Tuesdays in the park during the summer months . . . through Vacation Bible School that is open to any child in our area . . . to our mission work in support of Re-Member, a non-profit organization that works with the Oglala Lakota Nation on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota . . . and in so many other ways. 

Click on our Community link to learn more about all the ways we work together to meet the needs we see in and around our community, locally and beyond. Learn more about what is happening "Under the Bridge," our new Blessing Closet, the Medical Ministry Loan Closet that serves the Merrill area, and so many other programs. We are here for one another.

Living & Loving One Another

Here at Saint Stephens, we genuinely LIKE each other, and we want to spend time with one another. 

We create and nurture opportunities to share time together.
