Annual Youth Mission Trip
Every year the youth of St. Stephen throw a dart in the USA map and solicit mission sites within a day to a day and 1/2 drive away from Fort Worth. Most recently, we went to Living Hope Church, Chicago, Illinois, July 16-24, 2011, to help at the beginning of the restoration of a former Pool Hall, circa 1920, into fabulous worship space. We also conducted a recreational and religious camp for African American and various residents in Southside Chicago. We have also helped the youth head to the Navajo Nation’s Presbyterian Churchs in Arizona and Utah where they will paint, make repairs, rebuild a roof, provide Vacation Bible School to 35-50 children. Join us for our next mission trip!
Giving Tree, Easter Baskets, and Thanksgiving
- Every year, the congregation of St. Stephen sponsors Christmas Angels, individuals in financial need of Christmas presents as clothing, toys, or bicycles. We serve both South Central Alliance of Churches clients and Presbyterian Children’s Home recipients.
- We also provide Easter Baskets filled with bunnies, goodies, and gift cards to various children in need via the Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services network.
- And at Thanksgiving, we donate decorated bags of food for recipients of South Central Alliance of Churches, feeding our neighbors in friends in our zip code and surrounding zip codes. Currently, the Stepping Stones Children’s Fellowship group sponsors this event.
