DECEMBER 27, 2020 SUNDAY AFTER CHRISTMAS
Good Sunday, Saint Stephen’s Family!
(1) Father Steve’s last service. Abiding by physical distancing guidelines and other safety measures, a small cast was able to produce our 43nd virtual service!
This was Fr. Steve’s final service with us. He has officially retired. We wish him and Karen many, many happy years of retirement. He has been a true blessing to our church. We experienced a seasoned priest at the top of his game!
Many of you participated in today’s drive through communion. It is recommended that you consume the sacraments while watching the recorded service on Sunday.
THE CASTRector and Celebrant: Father Steve Teague Crucifer: John Todd Acolytes: Peter Strickland, John Todd, Jacob Wells, Thomas Wells, and Paul Wells Lay Reader: John Todd Organist: Mark Gibbons Videographer: Michael Wells

The hymns are:494 87 525
The postlude is a very special hymn to Fr. Steve. Give it a good listen.
Let’s watch the service together as a church from the safety of our homes at 11:00 am Sunday.
(2) Virtual services will continue for the foreseeable future. We are following Diocesan service guidelines which require our county to be under certain thresholds and have stable or declining case rates. Harnett county is still above those thresholds. Stay tuned.
