We have two Sunday Worship services, at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM
Worship at St. Stephen’s feeds our spiritual bodies and gives us a venue for continuous revelation by providing opportunities to connect with God. We strive for creativity and beauty within the traditions of the Episcopal Church and rejoice in the beauty of our sacred space and music.
At St. Stephen’s, we believe that religion should stimulate us intellectually, as well as emotionally and spiritually. We live out that belief by focusing on the presence and incarnation of Jesus in our lives and grappling with what it means for us and for our world.
Sunday is our primary gathering time where we share a simple meal of bread and wine and hear sacred words and stories that inspire us to engage in God’s presence. Using traditional formats for worship, we incorporate elements from many faith tradition resources to challenge our thinking. While the ordained clergy performs the primary aspects of the services, the parish family also actively engages in every service. Liturgy at St. Stephen’s is thought provoking and challenges us to expand our understanding of God. Our clergy incorporate education into their preaching. We have a tradition of inviting voices from campus ministry, seminary and diaconal interns, visiting theologians, and occasionally, members of the congregation to reflect with us the variety of how God speaks to us. In this way we are encouraged in our spiritual explorations to explore of new emerging theological ideas.
At St. Stephen’s we stream both the 8:30 and the 10:30 AM services.

Help to Lead Worship
The word “liturgy” comes from the Greek word liturgia, which literally means “the work of the people.” Although the priest is the most visible leader of our worship, we wouldn’t be able to conduct our liturgy without the ministries of many different people. Your ministry is needed. Serving in the liturgy is a gift to your fellow worshippers, a way of adding to their spiritual welfare, enhancing the beauty of our communion, and helping us all prepare for and practice our discipleship. Below you will find links to blog posts that describe and comment on the specific liturgical roles that you can take on. If you feel inspired to serve after reading these posts, please contact our rector for training and scheduling.
