Dear Paige,

Recognition (and celebration!) for Paige’s Ministry at St. Stephen’s: February 16

We are so thankful for the ministry of Paige during her tenure as Director of Children and Family Ministries at St. Stephen’s.  She brought passion, creativity, energy, many gifts, and teamwork in this focus of ministry as well as with staff and the whole congregation.  Paige has helped St. Stephen’s in so many ways, including as a supporter of our online ministries, through communications, and as photographer.  (Did you know how hard it was to find a photo OF her, rather than one that was taken BY her?)

Join us Sunday, February 16th as we recognize her ministry (during both services), stay for a reception and fellowship celebrating her time as part of St. Stephen’s staff, and welcome her and her family as they look forward to continuing as part of the St. Stephen’s family, worshiping and serving alongside of us as members!

Because we know that not everyone will have an opportunity to be in attendance, we encourage you to leave a comment (below) for Paige here that we can share with her, showing how she has inspired, encouraged, and touched lives through her important ministry.

Let’s show some love!

Dear Paige,


  1. What’s keepin’ you busy?
    That was a question that came up at your interview, Paige, as a way that you talked about engaging people and prompting good answers from them (rather than just “what is your job?” or “how’s it going?”).
    I first of all celebrate that engagement and directness of relationship that you shared while I was at StSt and which I expect has continued. You integrated and enhanced community, in Monona and the congregation. I’m grateful!
    As you conclude in your role and get to return to being a regular “lay” person, I look forward to how those relationships will persist and keep vitalizing your family and the congregation, even as you come up with some new answers yourself for the question “What’s keepin’ you busy?”
    Thanks Paige!

  2. Paige,
    It was great to help you in your early journey in your role at St. Stephens. Thanks for bringing us all together to support each other and to be part of a group of parents who understood the busy life with young children. Though I love being a part of my (not so) new church in Sun Prairie, I still think of you and the other families. We had some fun times and some messy times and remember our weird/scary camping experience?!

    Enjoy your new found time! You have earned it!

  3. Thank you for all you have done as a “staff” member. One of the benefits of becoming strictly a “lay” member is that you can now say “NO” as needed, but hopefully it will make you only slightly less involved at St. Stephens …. For one, my friend, I hope we will still see you around aplenty and may the good Lord be with you and bless you and your family as you move on to new roles! Thanks again!!!!

  4. Though we’re in Florida now, visiting family, we wanted to be part of your transition at St. Stephens. We can’t be present, but will be there in spirit! What a wonderful addition you’ve been to the church, giving so much inspiration and making so many families very happy.
    Enjoy your newfound extra time and don’t forget to “take a walk in the prairie” next spring!

    Rosemary and Don Lehman

  5. Paige,
    I am deeply grateful for your ministry … for your passion for youth, for music, for justice, for community, for life, for laughter, for the Gospel. I look forward to seeing how your discipleship journey continues to unfold.

  6. Paige, what a wonderful contribution you have made to our congregation. You are amazing and have so many beautiful ideas. We are so glad you are remaining a part of the congregation. We look forward to continued partnership in Christ. (Your kids at school are lucky to have you.)
