Worship and Sunday School Every Sunday @ 10 am
We are worshipping in person, with masks (regardless of vaccine status). You can also find us on Facebook at 10 am for a live broadcast of our Sunday worship and at 9 pm every day for recorded Compline (bedtime prayer).
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.
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, trans or cis, 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. If you're curious about what worship is like in an Episcopal Church, you can find out more here. A quick note for people with allergies or asthma - we don't use incense, and our candles are oil-filled, which produces less smoke. We offer wheelchair accessible entry, seating, and restrooms. All of our restrooms are gender inclusive.
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 an indoor food pantry and an outdoor Blessings Box, 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 to get help. We're a small church with limited resources, but we share what we have with those in need.
Our season of stewardship is upon us. During this time, we invite you to pray and reflect on how you give back to God - not to gain God's favor, but in gratitude for all God has done and as part of your commitment to building the kingdom of God. Your giving includes the time, treasure, and talent you commit to all the things in your life - kids' activities, social and political organizations, social justice campaigns, and the church. Our theme this year is A Future With Hope. If you would like to make (non-binding) pledge to St. Stephen's, please complete this form by December 12, or, if you received one, fill out the form that was mailed to you.
We're working on our Christmas Baskets for families in need. Each basket contains all the things necessary for a festive dinner, from a turkey or ham to all the sides to dessert and snack mixes. Each week, we ask people to bring in items to fill the baskets. You can see the weekly item in the bulletin. We also need cash donations to buy the turkey or ham, plus for the $100 Meijer gift card that each family receives. If you know a family that could use a basket, please call the office.
We're collecting toys for kids at Crossroads! Crossroads is a social service ministry in Detroit. We're collecting new, unwrapped toys for kids from 5-18. Please bring them by the first week in December.
Our indoor food pantry hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 10-3. We also have a well-stocked Blessings Box outdoors, so food is available 24/7! Each week, we ask people bring a specific item to church to help keep our food pantry stocked. From now through December, we're focusing on items for our Christmas baskets for families in need. (Please see above for the needs for that project.) NEWSFLASH! Our outdoor pantry is getting heavy usage! If you can donate pop top stews, soups, pasta, an fruit; pop tarts, peanut butter, or any other easy-to-eat food, we would love it!!!
We have an innovative and creative curriculum from Sparkhouse Media for kids from preschool through Grade 12. Sunday School kids (preschool through elementary) meet every Sunday and rotate through worship, multimedia Bible stories, and creative responses and games that reinforce the lesson. Older kids have Youth Group once a month (second Sundays) during church to explore a theme. This fall, it's Prayer. The Youth Group also has one activity a month, usually a service project, but sometimes a fun event. You can find the most up to date information on Facebook.
