SAINT STEPHEN LUTHERAN WELCOMES YOU
Come have your spirit lifted
DEAR FRIENDS IN CHRIST,
RE: COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS), WE ARE MEETING NSIDE THE SANCTUARY, FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES OF THE CDC AND THE SYNOD. WE WILL CONTINUE TO CLOSELY MONITOR THE SITUATION AND WILL KEEP YOU INFORMED ON ANY UPDATES.
WHO WE ARE
A Community of Faith
Saint Stephen Lutheran Church came into being in September of 1965. A community of Lutherans endeavored to build a church structure and to bring together a congregation of faithful believers in Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We believe people should be a part of a community of faith where they live, in which they are continually confronted with the love of God and His claim upon their lives. We believe people should have active involvement in the worship and work of the church in which they are members, so that each person grows in their faith and discipleship. Lutherans profess a faith in the sacrament of Baptism and Holy Communion. We believe that by God’s Grace we are forgiven and freed from our sins through the birth, death and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ. All Baptized believers are invited to the sacrament of Holy Communion at Saint Stephen. We offer you a church that is small enough to know who you are and to care about you. We offer you a church that needs your talents and abilities as God calls you to share them. We offer you a church where we feel encouraging, challenging, humbling, redemptive love of God, in the name and person of His Son, our Lord. We hope you will want to be a part of this fellowship of faith in Christ Jesus. As a community we have an active service life including BAFTA (Be A Friend to All), a ministry for developmentally-challenged adult women. Our Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has an ongoing food pantry and does service projects, often geared toward displaced women and children. The Men of Saint Stephen do work with various veteran's groups. Our youth are active in both the community and the Synod.
We are served by Pastor Joel Hicks and Organist Justin Gould.
