Welcome!

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.

Lenten Study on Creation Care

A Beginners Guide to Creation Care and the Climate Crisis.

Zoom on Thursdays at 4pm, February 25 – March 25

This Guide was designed as a 5-week course of Lenten study by the Earth Care team at St. Benedict’s, Los Osos. Each session in the series offers prayers, guided reflections on Scripture, theological perspectives, group discussion and short videos to make up 1-hour meetings about our relationship with God’s world and our responsibility for it.


For additional information contact Kathryn Bumpass at kathrynb@mail.fresnostate.edu or by phone 805-709-0840.

 


Lenten Meditation

In response to the unprecedented events of the past year, Episcopal Relief & Development’s 2021 Lenten Meditations share deeply personal reflections on the theme of lament from a diverse group of writers. Many of the authors share experiences related to a variety of issues including disease, violence, racial injustice and poverty.  The meditations follow the “Four Steps of Lament” outlined by author and speaker Heidi Weaver:

  •     Rest, to take sabbath time to simply be present to our current situation
  •     Reflect on that which has been lost
  •     Repent for the sufferings and loss we have caused or overlooked
  •     make Restitution and be Restored to God and to one another

How to Be An Ally

The Diversity Coalition of SLO held 4 panel sessions on "How to be an ally". Each had a different constituency of the community, including one with a panel of faith leaders. They were all very good. Watch them at: https://www.diversityslo.org/

 


Responses from The Episcopal Church

At the highest levels and locally, Bishops and clergy have addressed the issues of the ongoing protests and the use of church property for political propaganda. Fr Ian has not issued a separate statement, but his voice echoes those of the following:
