Our mission at St. Stephen's is to share God's Love and Bring Hope Through Ministry and Service. Sharing God's Love and Bringing Hope informs all we do
Children and Youth Programs
When a child is baptized at St. Stephen's, we promise to support each child in "their life in Christ". This support is reflected in the Church School Program for our youth.
During the COVID 19 outbreak, St. Stephen's will continue to offer Christian Education for our children every Sunday. You can participate in our Virtual Sunday School classes at St. Stephen’s Sunday School Group on Facebook! The group is private, so please be patient. It may take a day to be accepted. We will be providing virtual classes for the foreseeable future
