Welcome!

Worship Every Sunday @ 10 am

Welcome to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. If you're looking for a church home where you can experience God in worship, make new friends, and help the community, we invite you to explore this site and, if you choose, to join us some Sunday. We welcome you whether you are new to faith or have been in church all your life, full of doubt or firm in your faith, young or old, rich or poor, LGBTQ or straight, full of joy or consumed by sorrow. Whoever you are and wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome here. You can read more about what we believe and who we are here.

We're dedicated to being a positive part of the community. If you live Downriver and need help, contact our office at 734-284-8777. We have a clothing closet and food pantry, and we can occasionally assist with other needs or refer you to agencies that have more resources. You don't need to be part of the congregation. Jesus's acts of compassion, mercy, feeding, and healing were for everyone, and so is our help. We're a small church with limited resources, but we share what we have with those in need.

Our address is 2803 First Street, Wyandotte, MI 48192 (corner of First and Chestnut).  There is some parking in front of the church on First Street, and there is a municipal parking lot just across Chestnut Street from the church. We offer wheelchair accessible entry, seating, and restrooms.  Our downstairs restrooms are gender inclusive.

We are proud to be part of the Wyandotte community. We've been here for over 150 years! If you're new to the area or just want to know more about the city, you can find more information here.


What's happening?

Each week, we ask people bring a specific item to church to help keep our food pantry stocked. You can always bring any non-perishable item, but bringing the item of the week helps keep items in stock that are popular with our guests. For next Sunday, the item is pancake mix.

Coloring posters are back for Lent! This year's focus is on the Psalms. Ask Pastor Andrea about taking home a poster to color!

Our Lenten Program this year will focus on the Psalms. It begins February 21. Find out more here.

Our Annual Meeting was January 28. You can view the full reports here.

Episcopal 101 classes were held in January. If you want to find out more about our tradition, you can view the materials online here.

During church in January, we did an Instructed Eucharist. An Instructed Eucharist is a commentary on what we do during worship and why. Written materials were given out in church and are available here if you want to go deeper into this study.

We are sharing the light of Jesus and the love of God by making a difference in our community! In December, we collected gifts for 65 of our Puzzle Kids on the autistic spectrum! They were so grateful, they made us a thank you tree! We also gave out 8 Christmas baskets, which reached 21 individuals and included a holiday dinner, small gifts for children, and a Meijer gift card. And we collected $1,800 for Blessings in a Backpack, which provides weekend food to kids who get free or reduced price school lunches. That's enough to feed 18 kids for a whole school year! Thank you to all who participated.
