Making Christ Known To ALL!

Oak Forest,  Illinois

Worship Assistants (Ushers, Readers & Communion) are always needed for

both services. Monthly sign up sheets are posted on the bulletin board in

the narthex. If you have any questions you can talk to Elsie Burk (8:30am

service) or Tina Rybolt (11am service) and Donna Aggen.

Coffee Hour Hosts are needed. Everyone always enjoys a cup of coffee and

goodie after/between services and it seems to be falling on the same folks all

the time. Choose a Sunday every couple of months for you to host or find

someone to host with. All that is involved is making coffee, which is

provided, and putting out treats and cleaning up at the end. There is a sign

up sheet on the bulletin board and if you have any questions please talk with

Michelle Sowa. THANK YOU! Items that can be donated for those hostless

Sundays are, flavored creamer, cookies, crackers, items that can be frozen,

etc. Regular and Decaf Coffee is always needed.

LOVE SUNDAY - 1st Sunday of each month we help  ST. STEPHEN'S FOOD PANTRY stock  their shelves.  Please consider donating non-perishable items, especially proteins.  Leave your generous donation in the corridor and it will be delivered to St. Stephen's Lutheran church once a month.  Thank you.
