Never stepped in a church? Nor raised Lutheran? All are welcome here!
This Thursday saw the St. Stephen’s Senior housing ground-breaking. This project provides an affordable rental complex for low-income seniors, a population where more are becoming homeless. About 150 people, a third from the congregation, attended the ceremony.
The $18 million project, six years in the making, represents the first time a church in Santa Cruz County has donated land for affordable housing. The land, formerly an orchard, was donated to the church by member Ella Bostwick, who died in 1982.
Sunday, May 1st at 10:30am
Guest Preacher: Bishop Mark Holmerud
Hurray! It is finally here! After much prayer and planning the building of 40 units of affordable housing will begin. We will gather together to give thanks to God for this opportunity to be good stewards of the land and serve others.
Our regular worship service will conclude as we process to the field for a special dedication ceremony and blessing, followed by a good old-fashioned Lutheran Potluck!
Please sign-up to bring something to share.
