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.

Chocolate Easter Eggs!ChocEgg4Web

Order by March 11

Order our wonderful Chocolate Fudge Easter Eggs for yourself, your friends and family or sponsor an egg for a needy child.  Just $9 for the half-pound egg or $5.50 for the quarter-pound -  a bargain for hand-made, beautifully decorated, quality chocolate….. just the thing to celebrate the end of Lent! Proceeds from the sale of these eggs go toward community programs through our Parish Council. 


The deadline for submitting orders is Sunday, March 11th.   Order forms are available in the church office, at the back of the church, in the Boydston Room and here.  There’s a spot on the order form to purchase chocolate eggs to be donated to the Women’s Shelter, children in the homeless shelter program, and the Family Care Network.  When you order Chocolate Easter Eggs for your family and friends, consider marking the spot to sponsor an egg for a needy child as well.


Orders will be ready to pick up after services on Palm Sunday, March 25th.  We’ll be making the “no nut” eggs first, so if you’ll need yours early, choose “no nut” and you can pick them up the Sunday before Palm Sunday (March 18th).  All eggs will be ready to pick up after both services on Palm Sunday.


If you have questions about ordering Chocolate Easter eggs or making them, see, call or email Kathleen (546-0880, kapennington@netscape.net.
