Weekly Worship

Weekly Worship

Worship is the heart of life with St. Stephen’s Church.  In the midst of these challenging times, we’ve found new ways to draw closer to God and connect as a community. We gather virtually and in-person weekly. Each of these opportunities enables us to seek refreshment, renewal of our connection to  God, one another, and the world.

Whether you choose to join us in person or online, we’d love to welcome you wherever you are on your faith journey.
