Invest in Eternity

St. Stephen's Episcopal Church relies on pledges and weekly collections from the individuals and families who attend our services to serve others in our community, operate our historic facility, pay the salaries for our staff members, support our diocese and the organizations that use our facility, and handle the numerous maintenance projects associated with owning a building of such significance. As a religious institution, St. Stephen's is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization; all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

There are many ways to give to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church.

  • Provide an annual pledge. This allows our Vestry to plan for the church's financial future. Pledges are set in the late fall of each year; the funds are collected throughout the calendar year as determined by each parishioner. Pledges fund the salaries, maintenance projects, office expenses, and other financial commitments set by the church;

  • Weekly collections during our services add to the funds used to maintain our structure and handle our financial commitments;
