This Week at St. Stephen'sOne-Time Gift

Our Community

We are a progressive Christian community that welcomes the challenge of faith. We don’t offer easy answers and we don’t agree with each other on many things. But we do share a common challenge to care, to grow, in the way of Jesus. Gathering in Jesus’ name is difficult for some of us because of the way it has been misused in our culture and by us. However, the challenge of Jesus to love God first and our neighbors draws us together to worship and serve. Through our church, day school, and community center we strive to invite diverse people into greater wholeness; we are a community of wonder and of action.
