Greetings from St. Stephen's!
We are glad God has led you here and would like to tell you a little more about our parish.
Our goal is, like St. Stephen, to be "full of faith and the Holy Spirit" (Acts 6:5) which means we keep focused on God and trust in his Spirit to direct and bless us.
At St. Stephen's this is expressed in our desire to be a healthy church of worship, discipleship, outreach, and fellowship. In worship we are within the Anglo-Catholic tradition of sung services, reverence, and even a little incense. In addition, we have a strong sense of discipleship with Christ centered preaching and teaching. In outreach as a parish we have a strong desire to reach out with the love of Christ to the community, and are eagerly working towards making this a vital part of who we are. Finally, fellowship is also important to us, and we have several opportunities to grow in faith together throughout the month.
We hope that you drop by a few times and pray about becoming a part of what God is doing in our church.
