You are welcome here!
Whether you are thinking about visiting St. Stephen's or have already come and are interested in finding out more, we welcome you and hope you are warmly greeted with the love of Christ.
We want you to know that we are available for you – to answer questions, to help you connect to others, to be your "road in" as you learn more about St. Stephen's and seek to find if God is leading you here to be a part of this community of faith. Our desire is to help you find the joy of community and worship we have found here.
When you visit an Episcopal Church or any church for the first time, it may feel a little strange and intimidating. We want you to be able to relax, feel welcome, and be able to participate as you choose.

“Come!” is the great invitation our Lord Jesus issues. It does not mean only some or only those ready for the journey. It is a universal and fully accepting invitation for all people to come seek Christ now at this moment – no matter from where you have come, who you are, how imperfect you might be, how wounded you are, how many doubts you have, how worthless you may feel. The people of St. Stephen’s are committed in faith to living up to the inclusion and grace of this invitation.
“Follow me!” is the path we inevitably walk after coming to Christ. St. Stephen’s proclaims as a faith community that our calling and strength in God is when all of us – all races, genders, political persuasions, orientations, nationalities – commit to a life that seeks and follows Christ in all things. This is what the Church is for us. Jesus unites us in the diversity of our backgrounds and gifts. Jesus makes us powerful in and through our weakness.
We invite you to come and see the life of Jesus among us at St. Stephen’s, to claim your place in a community of irresistible love, and to follow Christ with friends in a place where abundant life is experienced and shared daily with others.
