My Brother’s Keeper
This team meets at St. Stephen’s on Wednesdays in the spring, summer, and fall, to make sleeping bags for the homeless. The bags provide warmth and comfort on cold nights and include a package of toilet articles, hats, scarves, gloves, and socks. This group has also expanded its mission to include making sandwiches on Fridays twice a month, to be distributed to the homeless in Baltimore.
Our Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday sharing program invites everyone at St. Stephen’s to help provide food for holiday meals and gifts for specific families in our area, all of which is delivered by our wonderful volunteer drivers.
St. Stephen’s sponsors Cub Scout Pack 758, which meets for den and pack meetings at the church. Membership in the pack is open to all youth, boys and girls; a majority of our families live in the Crofton Meadows community.
Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family. In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right- now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life. This outstanding experience is available to boys and girls, Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.
For more information about Scouting and Cub Scout Pack 758, please send an e-mail. One of the pack leaders will get back to you as soon as possible.
