Welcome to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.


Our mission as a parish is to open our hearts to God and to share Christ’s unconditional love with the world. We do this by following three pathways:

  • Welcoming: We invite all to join us at every stage in their spiritual journeys.
  • Worshiping: We cultivate a living tradition of liturgy and a life made holy by the sacraments.
  • Working: We share our abundance, we strive for justice, and we accept our calling to protect God’s creation.

Congregational Choral Evensong

Sunday, June 18, 4 p.m.

A beautiful Evensong, the Vespers service of the Episcopal Church, will be sung by a choir made up of all in attendance.  No experience needed, just a love of singing.  Join us for beverage to quench your thirst after singing, and light snacks.


This is a community event, a Congregational Choral Evensong. Everyone is invited to come and sing with us.  All faith traditions are welcome. You don’t have to be an Episcopalian or even a church go-er. And you don’t have to have a great voice or special training, just a love of singing.

Cropped ChoirDec2016Concert4WebThe congregation will be the choir for the entire service, except for 2 pieces – the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis – that will need some rehearsal, and will be performed by a special group. All other service music will be provided in the booklet you’ll receive at the door.   Want to be a part of this special group? Contact Kathryn Bumpass by phone 805-709-0840 or email  You can also contact St. Stephen’s music director, Katya Gotsdiner-McMahan at

Bring your friends. We look forward to seeing you at this community event.
