St. Stephen New Members On God’s Team, Win With Jesus!
When Jesus asked Matthew, the tax collector to follow Him, Matthew wanted everyone to know he had made his connection with God. He invited friends and guests and hosted a party at his home celebrating his new life in Christ (Matthew 5:27-29 and 2 Corinthian 5:17).
Winning with Christ and sportin’ a “I Love My Church” t-shirt, new member Maurice Thomas holds the gift he won at the celebration, bookends shaped like a football that read “Christ Is Life.” Maurice is a member of the Building In Christ adult bible fellowship class. He got connected to the Men’s Ministry and Mighty Men’s Choir shortly after joining in 2010. Also, he is a member of the Prayer Ministry.
We invite you to join St. Stephen Church and/or become apart of the Member Services Ministry by calling 502-583-6798, Ext. 6804.
