What do I wear?

People tend towards business casual, though blue jeans are not uncommon either. 

 

How do I get there?

We're on the Southeast corner of Cherry and Crockett in downtown Sherman.

 

Where do I park?

Our parking lot is north of the church across Cherry.

 

What door do I enter?

The two sets of big red doors lead into our sanctuary.

 

What can I expect?

At St. Stephen's our worship is by Word and Sacrament, or by the Bible and God's means of grace in things such as the Eucharist or Holy Communion. You can expect a lot of Bible! We read from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Gospels every Sunday. You can expect to pray. There is time every Sunday to ask God for the needs of the world, Church, others, and ourselves. You can expect to praise God in song. And you can expect to celebrate the Eucharist (Holy Communion) each Sunday as Jesus commanded us and as the early Church did - this which is in some mysterious way the Body and Blood of Christ that nourishes our souls and strengthens us for a life of discipleship to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

 

Communion every Sunday?

Yes! Following Jesus and the early Church we have Communion every Sunday.

All who've been Baptized by water in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are invited to receive this Sacrament of Christ's Body and Blood. Our tradition is to come to the Altar and kneel at the rail.

If you do not wish to receive or not been Baptized you're invited up for a blessing from the priest during that time. Just cross your arms across your chest to indicate you are not receiving.

We use real wine and not grape juice, so if you wish to only take the bread then you may do so and cross our arms as the chalice comes by.

 

Where are the restrooms?

There's a family and handicapped restroom on the bottom floor, along with the women's nearby. There's also a men's restroom upstairs. Please see the map.

 

What about childcare?

Our childcare is currently on hold. We apologize for the inconvenience!
