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.

Inclusivity Statement

 St. Stephen's Episcopal Church is a congregation of families and singles, children and seniors, and a diversity of ethnicities, races, sexual orientations, interests, and backgrounds. We are followers of Jesus, guided by His teaching and example to love God and our neighbor. We welcome all people regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, racial background, mental or physical ability, recovery, political belief, economic condition, and all other expressions of what it means to be human. We invite you to worship with us and walk with us no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.
