What Can You Do

Recognize that your responsibility as a Christian goes well beyond worshiping one hour, one day a week. As a disciple of Jesus we are asked to roll up our sleeves and do something to make this world a better place, to make our society more moral and just, to help our youth understand our faith and live it without being embarrassed, to help feed the hungry, and to ensure the environment is protected.

God created you with an awesome purpose for life. Through prayer, Bible study, and community with other believers you can discover His pan for you. St. Stephen has opportunities to help you grow in your walk with God.

So, join one of our existing ministries and help them implement existing programs or suggest new initiatives and make them happen. Help us make St. Stephen a magnet for people of good will.
