PASTOR'S THOUGHTS 

After serving many faithful years to our Lord and congregations, our designated pastor has retired.

Until we have a vacancy pastor, please contact Circuit Pastor Philip Heyer for pastoral help, emergencies, hospitalizations, etc.

He can be reached at (920) 887-1117 (home) or via e-mail pastorheyer@saintstephen.org

St. Stephen’s is currently without our own Pastor. Our Vacancy Coordinating Pastor is Pastor Philip Heyer. Pastor Heyer serves with two other Pastors at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam. He is also our Circuit Pastor. With two congregations (St. John’s & St. Stephen’s) having individual worship services on Sundays, it is difficult to ask one Pastor already serving another church to add those two services to his Sunday schedule. Therefore, Pastor Heyer is coordinating guest Pastors to lead our worship each week, with him also taking a turn every 4-5 weeks.


 

We thank the following Pastors who have been serving us during our vacancy:

Pastor Matthew Crass

Pastor Steven Ehlke

Pastor Walter Goers 

Pastor Philip Heyer

Pastor Eugene Kock

Pastor Ed Lindemann

Pastor David Nottling

Pastor Soukamay Phetsanghane

Pastor Scott Schultz

Pastor Daniel Schumann

Pastor Timothy Schwartz

Pastor Robert Wilke
