From The Pastor’s Desk

Pastor Jen Hoffman

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Words can’t express how much the community of
St. Stephen has meant to me over the last six years. I thank God that my call to
ministry led me to you. And I thank God that the Holy Spirit will lead you to your next
pastor. You are not on this journey alone. I urge you, as the apostle Paul did to every
community he was a part of, to continue to love God and love and care for one another.
Pray together. Bear witness to Jesus together. Support one another. And continue to
extend God’s welcome and invitation to life through your service in the world, for your
lives are a witness to Christ and his love. I will continue to pray for you in the days
ahead. Always remember that you are loved. You are blessed. You are children of
