Some people have called St Stephen the 'loaves and fishes' church because we have been blessed to be able to multiply our resources to impact our community. Whether supporting our troops, feeding the hungry, or interceding for brothers in foreign mission fields, we take our commitment to put hands and feet on the Gospel seriously. You'll find many opportunities to answer the call to love and serve the Lord within our congregation.

Operation Support Peace
Operation Support Peace was born in early in 2003 as a joint idea of Joyce Curry and Command Sergeant Major Ron Curry, who led a U.S. Army battalion during the invasion into Iraq in 2003. Supported by Saint Edward Catholic School and other community partners – and later by Saint Stephen Church, OSP provided support for our Armed Forces members and their families. Now an official 501C3 tax-exempt organization, Operation Support Peace continues to be our best outreach to our Armed Forces. Executive Director Joyce Curry has received numerous awards for her work in this area.
Anglican Relief and Development Fund
The impact of the Anglican Relief and Development Fund speaks for itself. Millions of people are benefitting from the work of ARDF in 36 countries. Because ARDF partners with local churches on the ground, we see tremendous fruit from the projects they invest in. Saint Stephen Church makes a monthly contribution to the ARDF.
