LOCAL MISSION WORK
We are involved in many different missions throughout the year, including giving backpacks to children, an angle tree at Christmas and food drive in the winter. Our primary mission is Room in the Inn. During the coldest and warmest months of the year, in coordination with the Presbyterian Night Shelter, we host men experiencing homelessness at our church. This is a volunteer based mission and are always looking for more help. Learn about RITI.
Our Core Values
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.
