Church Alarm

A reminder to check the blue light above the south door into Telman Hall – if it is blinking, it means the alarm is set and must be turned off.   Unlock door and immediately enter the code to turn alarm off.   Always remember to re-set alarm when you leave.


Church Cleaning

Each Tuesday at 8:00 a.m., the men of the church and a few of the ladies vacuum and dust Telman Hall, clean the bathrooms, clean and mop the kitchen, and every other week, vacuum and dust the church.   Their members are few and they could use many more hands to help.   Please consider lending a hand – call Chuck Fultz, 943-9225, for information.


Appreciation Luncheon

Saturday, June 2, at 12:00 – The ECW will host a luncheon to thank all who volunteer for St. Stephen’s.   Please be sure to sign up in Telman Hall or RSVP to Carol Morrow so we know how much food to prepare.  


Thrift Shop Sale

Half price sale will be held Monday, June 4 through Saturday June 9.  The shop is open from 10:00 until 2:00 p.m.    We greatly appreciate your donations – they enable the Episcopal Church Women to continue to contribute to our church. A list of items we can accept and those we cannot has been posted on the bulletin board.


Note:    No Tai Chi classes until October.



Sunday, June 10, 6 p.m. at Lane-Glo South on old S.R. 54.   Call Marty Giles, 727-842-6530, for information.


Angels Left Behind

Saturday, June 9 – 4:30 p.m.   Widows and widowers are invited to join us at Queen’s Pizza, on the East side of U.S. 19 between Tarpon Avenue and Martin Luther King. Please sign up so reservation can be made.


Food, Fun & Fellowship Club

Monday, June 18 – 5:30 p.m. for social time, dinner at 6:00 p.m. Bring a dish to share and/or a snack.     Dessert will be furnished by the hosts for the day.


Vestry Meeting

Wednesday, June 20 - 5:00 p.m.



St. Stephen’s Altar Guild

We invite you to seriously consider volunteering for the altar guild.   You would be another of God’s housekeepers – each Saturday morning, we clean the brass, clean and re-fill all the candles and Holy Water fonts, and set God’s table for Holy Eucharist on Sunday morning.   We launder the altar linens and insure that the priest’s vestments are cleaned on a regular basis. Sounds like a lot of work – well, it is – but it is a labor of love and we are honored to do it.

Stop by the Sacristy Saturday mornings after 9:00 a.m. and see what we do.
