Room In The Inn

During the hottest and coldest months of the year, St. Stephen opens its doors the homeless in our community every Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Through our partnership with True Worth Place, up to 8 men are transported to Parish Hall where we provide an air-conditioned (or heated in the winter) space for them to enjoy a restful evening, including two warm meals– and especially warm hospitality among St. Stephen members and friends.

All volunteers and guests must be fully vaccinated for COVID.

Sack Lunches for the Presbyterian Night Shelter

Once a month, St. Stephen Presbyterian Church prepares and delivers approximately 400 sack lunches to the Presbyterian Night Shelter to help feed their guests and staff. 

Disaster Assistance Through Presbyterian USA

St. Stephen is active in various denominational mission opportunities and makes regular financial contributions to Presbyterian Church (USA) Mission Causes; Grace Presbytery Mission Support; Synod of the Sun educational and leadership mission; the Christmas Joy Offering; One Great Hour of Sharing; and the Theological Education Fund. 

We also regularly announce ways to participate in Presbyterian Disaster Relief funding for regions of the world in critical need of funding.

Samaritan House Supper Club

St. Stephen is part of the Samaritan House Supper Club, a way for faith communities to provide a home-cooked meal for the residents of Samaritan House. On the third Friday of each month we prepare and serve dinner to the residents, all of whom are affected by HIV/AIDS and need the housing and other services provided by Samaritan House. Your donation can help provide a meal by selecting “Samaritan House Supper Club” under the “FUND” drop down menu (see the “Donate” button on home page) OR mail a check to the church. 

SERRV is a nonprofit alternative trade organization that promotes social and economic justice for people in developing regions of the world by marketing their handcrafts and food products in a just and direct manner. St. Stephen hosts an annual, international market at the church during the Christmas season that returns the profits from the sale of art and handcrafts back to the artist and village.
