What can I expect?


A St Stephen worship service typically lasts around 60 minutes. These services are composed of sacred moments dedicated to worshiping God through music and prayer, engaging with Scripture, seeking Jesus' wisdom for life, and listening for the Holy Spirit's guidance. Time is provided for personal reflection, with kneeling rails available for prayer. The practice of giving tithes and offerings is also observed as a way to respond to God's grace.

What about my kids?

We hold the belief that children deserve a fulfilling worship experience as well. That's why at St. Stephen, we prioritize creating sacred and spiritual experiences for children. Equally important to us is the safety of your child. To ensure safety, we have implemented a check-in process for THE MAX. Please allow a few extra minutes to sign in your children.

THE MAX is available during the 9:30 am Contemporary Service for children aged 3 years through 4th grade.
