At St. Stephen's, we pride ourselves on being a community of welcoming fellowship! If you are thinking about worshipping with us, you may have several questions. Below we have answered many of the most common questions about visiting our church. If you have any others, please feel free to reach out to the church office by email or phone.
There are two parking areas: the lower parking lot is accessed from St Stephen’s Drive, with stairs that lead you up to our welcome patio and church entrance. The upper parking lot is accessed from Las Vegas Drive and has three “tiers,” with stairs that lead you down to the welcome patio and church entrance. Accessible parking is available in both lots, and there is elevator access to the sanctuary from the lower lot.
Most parishioners dress in business casual attire for our regular worship.
Children of all ages are welcome at St. Stephens!!! For children between 1-3, we have a nursery attendant to provide child care. For children 4-12, we offer Sunday School in our lower classrooms. The children will join at the Peace to participate in communion with their family.
As an Episcopal Church, St. Stephen's uses the Book of Common Prayer as a guide to our worship. Our usual service is Holy Communion. While the readings from scripture and the music accompanying the service changes from week to week, the structure of our worship is consistent--most people can follow along from their second service.
We provide a weekly bulletin that has everything you need to fully participate in worship in one, convienent and easy to follow format. All of the prayers, readings, and music are together in order, making it easy to follow along in your very first visit.
Our 8AM service usually lasts about an hour. Our 10AM service usually concludes by 11:10.
Simply introduce yourself to an usher who will help connect you with a parishioner who will accompany you to coffee hour and help introduce you to other parishioners. You can also fill out a visitor card and a member of the church staff will follow up with you shortly.
