St. Stephen CME Church


Dear Friends...

Thank you for visiting St. Stephen CME Church on the web.

It is my prayer that you will find information on our site that will uplift your spirit and encourage you to begin a life of service to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, or if you do not have a church home, we invite you to unite with us at St. Stephen.

We are a loving, caring, giving church and we would be delighted to have you as a member of our church family.

Our church is very active in our community and we are eager for you to be a part of our service to others in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ as God has commanded us to do.

We look forward to seeing you very soon.

Peace and Blessings,

Rev. David C. and Mrs. Stephanie J. Isom
Rev. David C. Isom, Senior Pastor

Orders now being accepted for Heavenly Delights Cookbook
The Women’s Missionary Society at
St. Stephen CME Church, Fairfield, is accepting orders for its new Heavenly Delights cookbook with over 200 recipes by church members, friends and award-winning contributors from California to Florida.

The cookbook is dedicated to the memory of Betty Brewer who was the Missionary Society’s culinary chairperson. The cost is $20 per book and quantities are limited. The funds will be used to support technology, educational resources and activities for the children and youth ministries.

The cookbook contains contemporary recipes as well as traditional favorites that will appeal to every generation including appetizers, main dishes and desserts for small to large groups.

The book is bound with a durable cover and has dividers with biblical verses and cooking tips and is held together by a three-hole binder to easily add or remove pages. Organizers say the Heavenly Delights cookbook will be treasured in every home and makes a great gift for weddings or special holidays. 

Order may be placed Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the church, 2301 Union Avenue, or download the order form at www.stephencmechurch.org. To receive orders by mail, add $6.00 for shipping and handling plus $3.00 for each additional cookbook.  For information, call the church office at (707) 425-2925.
