A Welcoming Community of Believers
Think. Serve. Worship. Belong.
We Take Our Faith Seriously, But Ourselves...
… not so much. Worshipping God and serving Jesus Christ and humanity are serious business, but they’re also joyful. They’re the evidence of God’s Kingdom present in the world, and that’s something to We serve God through the worship of God in the timeless traditions of the Church.We serve Christ through bold assertion of the Gospel. And we serve our neighbors in countless acts of mission.
We serve one another through the genuine relationships that mark this community of believers.And through us, by God’s grace, Christ serves the world.
— Rev. Fritz
We encourage questions– theological inquiry, honest searching–when it comes to matters of faith. We believe in Jesus, but we don’t believe that people get faith by squelching their sincere doubts, fears and concerns. You’re free to be who you are at St. Stephen.
Our faithful commitment to Jesus calls us to serve our fellow human beings, not out of a sense of obligation, but out of a genuine desire to show Christ’s love to neighbor and stranger.
We maintain a tradition of worship that acknowledges the mystery and majesty of God. Our commitment extends to excellence in music, and sermons that are both intellectually challenging and spiritually uplifting.
Here you’ll find rich and poor, young and older, blended families, gay and straight—all working and celebrating together as the Family of God. Here, everyone belongs.
