Welcome

Our Mission is to worship, love and serve Our Lord Jesus Christ, welcoming everyone, deepening our faith, helping our neighbors and caring for creation.

St. Stephen's is a LGBTQ+ welcoming and affirming congregation. 

Due to COVID-19, Worship is occuring at home rather than onsite at our building.  Please join our Facebook Page for morning prayers and other offerings

Praying and Caring for Christen Herman and Peter

Earlier this month, Christen, the dear wife of our priest, Peter, had a medical emergency.  To support Christen and Peter, you may follow their journey on Christen's Caring Bridge Site.

If you want a tangible way to support Christen and Peter, family members have set up a fund for medical costs.  We are committing to pray each morning at 8 a.m, and 8 p.m (or whenever you are able), for Christen's continued healing and for Peter in his love and support of Christen.

We’re glad you found your way to our website. If you’re looking for a church committed to making God’s love tangible in our community - a love that does not discriminate or exclude but embraces and celebrates the inherent goodness of all people, a place where people are nourished by God’s word and where it’s safe to share doubts and grapple with tough questions in an effort to learn and grow in the faith - you’ve reached the right place. We invite you to come and see. We look forward to welcoming you.  ~Peter

January 31, 2021 at 12:00 PM
The second part of our annual meeting will be held at noon, on Sunday, January 31, 2021, using the Zoom platform. We will approve our 2021 budget, talk a little about the past year, and then put 2020 behind us. I do not think there are many of us who will be sad to see it go!

You will receive all reports for the past year prior to the meeting, so please read through them and if you have any questions or comments, bring them to the meeting.

If you have not used Zoom before, please contact your senior warden, Susan Ho, at susangerho@gmail.com, or 360-682-6091, and we will be sure to give you all the help we can on how to do that. If you do not have computer access, you can phone in, and at least be able to hear and speak at the meeting. We would love to see or hear as many of you as we can, as we are all in this journey together.
