Sunday Service Babysitting
Please note that Babysitting during the 10:00am Sunday service will not be available this Sunday July 1.
Food Barrel
Summer has arrived, but the lyrics “and the living is easy” do not apply to those who have insufficient income to secure adequate food for themselves and their families.  Please contribute to our food barrel to help people in that unfortunate situation in our county.
Our food barrel is located in the Narthex by the rear door to the Church, ready to be packed with nonperishable items such as: CANNED MEAT, CANNED BEEF STEW, CANNED TUNA, PEANUT BUTTER, JELLY, CANNED FRUIT, RICE, DRIED BEANS, 100% FRUIT JUICE, CANNED VEGETABLES, POWDERED MILK or PARMALAT, COLD and HOT CEREALS, CANNED SOUPS, MACARONI and CHEESE, CANNED OR INSTANT POTATOES, COFFEE and TEA.
The contents of each full food barrel at St. Stephen’s Church are given to the food pantry at Apostles’ House in Newark.  Families and individuals assisted by the pantry at Apostles’ House are referred there by social agencies and churches.
The Garden Club
The Garden Club invites all St. Stephen’s to come and see the “seeds that have grown in good soil.”  Pick some herbs: mint, basil, thyme, rosemary, and parsley or scallions.
The newly planted zinnias will hopefully be a source of altar flowers late summer through early autumn.
Please note the new rose bushes donated by Heloisa and Michael Rooney located near the sacristy door. Heloisa planted these in gratitude for graces received.

Christine’s Kitchen Update
Thanks to all volunteers and those who contributed food and supplies.
We were able to serve at least 60 needy souls and I am happy to report that food did not go to waste, what was not served was packed away in containers and distributed to the guests.
We don’t have any more volunteer dates scheduled for the rest of this year for Christine’s Kitchen.
If there is a positive response from the congregation or our interfaith partners to serve again this year, I will arrange it in the fall or summer, if not then it will be next year.   You can send me an email if you would like me to schedule another with your preference for fall or summer.
