St. Stephen's Outreach
“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:40
At St. Stephens, Outreach describes how we work to make a difference in our world. it is one way that we take the spiritual grace giving freely to us as Christians and work to transform lives as disciples of Christ. We are committed to making a difference in our local community and in the world at large.
We have several outreach initiatives currently in progress, and invite you to join us in our commitment. Watch this section to see what we are currently doing, as well as learning about the ways we have partnered with other ministries.

We provides an annual “learning camp” for kids ages 6-15 from the Clairfield and White Oak schools located in Claiborne and Campbell counties in the Clearfork Valley of the Appalachian Mountains.
Our Spring Camp is completed. Watch this space for our next camp.
Working with other partners in Andreson County, we provide necessary items to families throughout the year.
Right now we are working on alternative ways to help our food challenged neighbors. We'll post an update when we have a plan!
We help maintain and support a medical clinic in Haiti. As one of only two free clinics in Haiti, we work in outlying areas to bring basic medical care to those who otherwise are without any services.
The most urgent health need is an outbreak of scabies, and we have been able to wire funds for medications.
Walk Over Wednesday

Family Resource Center
