Prophet • Priest • King
New Sermon Series Begins November 10

A new three-week Sunday morning sermon series, Prophet Priest King: The Ministry of Jesus and his
Followers, begins on Sunday, November 10th at St. Stephen’s Church. It will conclude on Christ the King
Sunday, November 24th. At the 8:30 am, 9:45 am and 11:00 am services, we will be examining the Munus
Triplex or the threefold office or ministry of Jesus and how his followers are called to live out these
offices in each of our own ministries. In Jesus, the messianic hope of Israel was fulfilled, not only in
Christ as king, but also the Priestly, and the Prophetic functions among the people of God. These offices
have been for the work of our salvation and the salvation of the entire world.
John Wesley, the prime founder and shaper of the Methodist movement, writes in his Explanatory Notes
Upon The New Testament of the threefold office and our need as fallen humans. Writing about the Gospel
of Matthew, Chapter 1, he notes, “The word “Christ” in Greek, and “Messiah” in Hebrew, signify
“Anointed”; and imply the prophetic, priestly, and royal characters which were to meet in the Messiah.
Among the Jews, anointing was the ceremony whereby prophets, priests, and kings were initiated into
those offices. And, if we look into ourselves, we shall find a want of Christ in all these respects.” The
“want of Christ” is reflected in the Munus Triplex, also known as "the Triple Cure," referring to these
offices of Christ providing the remedy for us in our fallen condition. I hope you will be present for our
new series and will find one person to attend worship with you!

The Vision of St. Stephen’s Church

Receive Christ as the key to life,
awake and alive, growing in knowledge and love of God.

Reflect Christ as the catalyst for community,
inclusive and engaged, igniting mission and service for all.

Relay Christ as the call for a new generation,
convinced and committed, sharing faith and hope with others.

Dear St. Stephen’s family,

On Sunday, September 29th,we concluded the Sunday morning sermon series, Receive, Reflect, Relay Christ. During
the three-week series, we focused upon the vision statement of St. Stephen’s Church. Both the mission and vision
statements are the result of more than two years of prayer, study, congregational surveys, reflection, holy conferencing,
drafting and re-drafting, and then more holy conferencing. In April 2011, the Church Council of St. Stephen’s Church

approved both current mission and vision statements.

A mission statement is the WHY, that is, the reason why we exist. St. Stephen’s exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ, as
we seek the fulfillment of God’s reign and realm in the world. The vision statement, however, is the WHAT. It is the
more specific what that describes the clear, inspirational, and long-term, desired change resulting from our ministry
together as we open ourselves to God working in and through us in the power of the Holy Spirit. One of the functions of
our vision statement is it should help everyone, who is part of the body of Christ at St. Stephen’s, to stay on the same
page and moving in the same general direction. We should want our church family, including church members, regular
attendees and staff, to see in faith the vision of what our church will look like in the future. Also, we want to be able to
effectively communicate our vision with our guests and local community.

On the last Sunday of the Receive, Reflect, Relay Christ series the congregation was invited to participate in a five-
question survey about our vision statement. Three of the response questions asked for a short answer. Those responses
are still being reviewed. The other two questions asked for people to rate their agreement to a statement on a scale of one
(strongly disagree) through five (strongly agree). There was a total of 135 responses to the two statements. The results are
as follows:

Statement 1: The Vision is relevant to our life and ministry at St. Stephen’s Church.

Strongly Disagree 2 3 4 Strongly Agree
1 0% 10.25% 23% 5
.75% 66%

Statement 2: The Vision is helpful in relaying to others the focus of our life and ministry together.

Strongly Disagree Strongly Agree
12345

0% 2.3% 10.25% 26.7% 60.75%

These results point to continued strong acceptance of the vision statement, both directing the life and ministry of St.
Stephen’s and relaying the vision of St. Stephen’s to others. BUT I believe there also should be a next step for each of us!
As individuals, we too should discern how we are individually living out the call to Receive and Reflect and Relay Christ.
Are there ways that you are or are not stepping out in faith to Receive and Reflect and Relay Christ? I encourage you to
trust God, ask God to give you a vision of your next faithful steps, and then trust God to be with you as you Receive and
Reflect and Relay Christ.

I look forward to hearing how God is producing fruit on your faithful steps.

In God’s Love and Service,

Pastor Rob Robertson.

Ways to Get Connected with Your Church Friends!

This year, Children and Family Ministry focuses on
providing age-based fellowship opportunities for
children and families and supporting them to build
up relationships with each other regularly. We created
a gathering called “Let’s Get Together” for five
different groups on different Sunday after the 11 am
service. Activities include a light lunch, information/
wisdom sharing, encouragement and fellowship
among parents. Depending on the targeting group,
kids may stay with the parents for the whole time or
have their own fun time with Sunday School teachers
or childcare providers. Two gatherings happened in
the past two months, and three will be coming up. Our goal is to help the kids and
families to make their church friends that they can meet outside of church events
and support each other as someone is going through a life crisis or tough time as a
supporter and prayer partner.

In addition to the gathering, we are also compiling a Family Directory to help the
families connect more easily. Participation is voluntary. Only those, who give
permission to share their contact information with others, will be given others’
information. The Family Directory will include the following information: child's
name & age/grade, parent name(s), and parent email address(es).

There are more ways to get connected with your church friends. Please check Sunday
bulletin or Children’s Weekly eNews for upcoming events.

Also, we look forward to seeing everyone at the Advent Festival on Saturday,
December 7, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Our Cherub Choir and Children’s Choir will
be singing in the concert. More detailed information about this intergenerational
event can be found elsewhere in the Scroll.
