We need you in church and the community

God is expecting great things to happen in St. Stephen’s and He is expecting us to be a viable force in and around the city of McKeesport.

My fervent prayer is that we continue to love, cherish, respect and support one another in brotherly love. You are blessed with a wonderful Vestry and Finance Team whose loving desire is to excel in their responsibilities.

Our success is to have every member be a part of some ministry in the church and in the community. We have listed in this month’s newsletter those members who are involved in various responsibilities.

If your name is not listed, perhaps you might have an interest in serving in some capacity. Prayerfully consider how you might be a part of a particular ministry.

In order to accomplish our mission, we need you in church each Sunday. There is someone there that needs to experience your smile, your comfort, and your affection. A church has difficulty surviving with part time attendees. God is not a “part time God.” He doesn’t expect you to be a “part time member.”

A great country western song says it best. We are “greatly blessed, highly favored, imperfect but forgiven children of God.” See you in church!
—The Rev. David L. Kinsey
