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.
