Letter from Pastor and Council

Dear Members and Friends of St. Stephen’s,

Your church council continues to follow the Covid-19 situation. Erie’s rate of infection has increased dramatically so St. Stephen’s church council has decided to resume our virtual services on Facebook beginning January 3, 2021. There will not be any in-person services in the church building. All other activities in the church building are canceled. It is unknown at this time when it will be safe to resume in person.

To continue our worship and praise of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, a weekly pastoral video message will be posted on the St. Stephen’s Facebook page. You can access the video directly on Facebook or by clicking the Facebook icon on the St. Stephen’s website. See web addresses below.

Even though our church building is closed, the bills continue to come in and must be paid. Your continued prayers and offerings are appreciated. Offerings can be mailed to:

St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church
P.O. Box 1316
Erie, PA 16512

For Pastoral emergencies please call -
Pastor W. Owen Rhodes
Cell Phone: 814-881-7812

We remain yours in Christ through Word and Prayer.
Your Pastor and Council
