Worship Every Sunday @ 10 am
8:30 am August 19 and 26
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. 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'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?

Maybe you saw Presiding Bishop Michael Curry during the royal wedding this summer, and you want to know more about what he meant when he said, "There's power in love to show us how to live." Maybe you're yearning for a deeper relationship with God. Maybe you wonder what an Episcopal Revival might be like. We invite you to come and find out! Beginning September 9 and going for seven Sundays, we'll explore Bishop Curry's Way of Love, which is a practical, Bible-based, Jesus-centered way of life that you can follow - no matter who you are or what your situation is. We'll have music, dance, excellent preaching, a showcase of what St. Stephen's is doing to take God's love into the world (and how you can help!) - and more. Mark your calendars and bring friends and family!

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 toothpaste and/or a toothbrush.

It's that time of year again! The start of school is right around the corner. We're collecting backpacks and school supplies for Garfield Elementary and other Wyandotte schools. Please help the kids have what they need to learn: folders, pencils, pens, crayons, markers, paper, glue, glue sticks, and more.

Wyandotte community member Ken Bearden is asking for help with a project he calls the “Deodorant Drive.” It started when he learned from a friend at Wyandotte Roosevelt High School about teens in our community who sometimes lacked simple toiletries, like deodorant. It is such a simple thing, but it can mean so much to a kid’s education and self-esteem. They can walk down the hall, or go to P.E., or eat lunch, and focus on learning and being an awesome teen, instead of how they look, or smell, or feel. Here’s what we really need: deodorant & toiletries, men’s/women’s underwear, socks, feminine products, and Gift Cards for SUBWAY or MCDONALD’S, in small denominations. These can be a Godsend to teens in crisis who suddenly find themselves out of the home. You can drop off items at St. Stephen’s in August and we’ll get them to Ken. Thanks for helping brighten a kid’s day and future!

The Bishop Transition Committee is working hard to discern who is called to be our next Bishop. You can check here for updates on the transition process, as well as a prayer for our diocese.

Sharing our building with groups in the community allows us to support those who are marginalized and transform lives. Our Baptismal Covenant calls us to see and serve Christ in all people, and one way we do that is through making our facilities available to those who need them. We're excited to be hosting so many different community activities! Check out the calendar for meeting times/dates.
