About Our Church

 

History

 

Chur1890St. Stephen's was founded in 1867 as the 1st organized Protestant church in San Luis Obispo county. The original church building, locally known as a "carpenter gothic" gem, was built of Monterey Pine beams from Cambria, Ca. And covered with redwood on a site which cost $10. The rich hues of our memorial stained glass windows reflect both a pioneer heritage and a radiant future. The building today still retains the lines and flavor of the original structure

 

 

Mission

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.
