Who We Are

St. Stephen Lutheran Church was originally formed back in 1960 as a mission start of the Lutheran Free Church. Since that time we have been following our mission statement of "Proclaiming and Serving Jesus Christ.” In both word and deed, we strive to share and live the good news of God’s love and grace out in the world. Our goal is to not be just a Sunday morning church, but rather a church with a mission the other six days of the week too.​ We are a vibrant and growing congregation, with young families, single adults, empty nesters,and senior citizens. We invite you to check out our branch of the Body of Christ. Come check us out on a Sunday morning to see who we are.
