Through worship, learning and service, you see the community of St. Stephen’s strive to share God’s light in the world. Our music program is vibrant and our outreach efforts strong and varied. You are invited to join our community and to explore ways to participate.
Right away at St. Stephen’s, you can roll up your sleeves and cook and/or serve meals to hungry people in our community. You will be invited to bring food each Sunday as you are able to help stock the food shelves in the area. In the summer time you might find yourself in a community garden helping grow, harvest, and later freeze healthy produce for these meals. Working cooperatively with other groups in the community you will become part of a fabric of care woven with the help of many people and organizations.
- You might find yourself hawking plants or antiques at St. Stephen’s summer Peasant Market, a gigantic resale market that raises funds each year to support God’s work of love and service locally and throughout the world.
- In the fall you might trip over backpacks or school items for the Addison County Back-to-School Shop providing school supplies at minimal cost to children from low-income families. You also may join other friends from the congregation in a Habitat build or the CROP walk.
- In the building, in addition to our free lunch program, you will find 12-step groups that come together for support and healing, other support groups (like Speak-Up) through which people grow in personal strength and political strength. You could encounter college students camping out while they offer their services in agencies throughout the community, or bicyclists overnighting in their mountain rides to raise funds for MS research.
- You might participate in all of this simply through your prayers or your monetary offerings.
Know that you are welcome!
