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.

Outreach

Outreach

The ministry of outreachheeding God’s call to serve our community and the worldis central to our vitality and health as the Body of Christ. Christ’s command to care for the least among us is not the only reason for our care and acts of faith: We are promised new life when we give of ourselves by following Christ and participating in the kingdom of God by breaking out among us and in our lives.

Love God and Neighbor. Live fully.

Join us in working, praying, and giving to spread the kingdom of God. Your time, your prayers and your gifts are all needed as we strive to be Christ’s hands and feet in the world.

This fall, as an extension of the work we've done to define what it means to be a downtown church, the outreach committee invites you to join us for any and all of these opportunities to support and grow in awareness of the needs of the people who are homeless, jobless or hungry. The outreach committee meets on the second Monday of each month at 5:30 pm in the Zimmerman room on the second floor of the education wing. All are welcome.

Serve our Family

As God has comforted us, so we too provide comfort and assistance to the members of Grace and St. Stephen’s who need help as a result of a significant life occurrence, such as a birth, operation, death, divorce, or an on-going illness. This assistance can take a variety of forms—from a meal, a prayer, a hospital visit, or a visit from lay Eucharist visitors, to a kind word or a listening ear. More

Serve our Neighbors 

Working with each other and organizations committed to ending homelessness, hunger and the challenges faced by at-risk youth, we serve our community and our neighbors in many ways. More
