On Sundays centuries-old rituals and God’s message of hope and love combine to inspire and challenge us to face a noisy, complicated world with grace and love.

We welcome you to participate in and experience a transformative order of worship, beautiful choral music, vibrant congregational singing, and inspiring sounds from the organ. The order for the service--prayers, hymns and lessons—are provided in a bulletin so that all may participate as they wish.

At the 10:30 am service, children join the a member of the clergy for the children’s sermon after Sunday School, and then join their families for the remainder of the service.

Following either service, hospitality hour in the parish hall gives everyone a chance to connect with old friends, make new ones and weave more threads into the fabric of our parish life.

Ushers at the back of the church are available at anytime to answer any questions. We hope you will help us welcome you personally by completing the Contact Us form.

Voices of Grace

Worship and Programs on Sunday March 19: Searching for the Water of Life

Each day is warmer and drier than the last.  The ground is parched, the budding trees cry out for moisture, but there is none to be had these days in March along the Front Range of Colorado.  Today the people of Grace and St. Stephen’s pray for water—water for our comfortable lives, of course, but also for the Water of Life that comes only from God.  Join us as we pray that God will keep our souls and protect us from all evil that may assault us as we travel our Lenten journey toward Good Friday and Easter.more...

Worship and Programs on Sunday March 12: Our Journey into a Holy Lent

Join the people of Grace and St. Stephen’s as we journey into the time of Holy Lent—not as a time of withdrawal but as a time of entering and engagement.  We enter into a time of reflection, contemplation and self-examination.  We engage with those in need by collecting donations for a new homeless women’s shelter and by opening our church building as a place of refuge for homeless families.  Today the people of Grace and St. Stephen’s ask God to gather to himself those who have strayed from his ways so that all may embrace his truth.             more...

Worship with Us on Sun., Mar. 5: Have Mercy on Us

The services begin with the Great Litany, when we beseech our living Father to have mercy upon us and grant us strength and courage to resist Satan.more...

This Lent, Experience the Restorative Power of the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Observing a Holy Lent

In our Episcopal tradition, the beginning of the season of Lent is treated differently than the opening of any other Church season.  During the Ash Wednesday liturgy the priest is directed to read an invitation in the congregation.  The invitation not only invites the people to the observance of a holy Lent, it also gives some indication of what such an observance should look like.more...
