Micah 6:8 … “to walk humbly with your God.”

8:30 a.m. The liturgy with Holy Communion is simple and straightforward, and silence is one of the hallmarks of this service; though music is not usually included at this time. A sermon is always offered. All people are welcome to receive communion at our church.

10:30 a.m.¬†Eucharistic service uses a variety of sources for the liturgy, including the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), other Anglican prayer books, and other Christian traditions. Music from many eras is sung by both the congregation and St. Stephen’s choir, and several times a year visiting musicians or talented members share music. All people are welcome to receive communion at our church.

Wednesday Midday Prayer

12:30 p.m. The service begins in the nave of the church which opens at noon for a period of silent prayer and meditation. The spoken prayers and reflection start at 12:30 pm and are followed by lunch and conversation in the kitchen. All are welcome.
