Worship

The coronavirus has caused disruptions to every aspect of life, but that has not prevented us from gathering in worship of God!

St. Stephen’s offers several ways to join in fellowship with Christ and with one another, including Sunday worship (8 AM on Zoom, 10 AM in-person at the church outdoors when weather permits), morning prayer, plus live streaming and call-in opportunities.

Sunday Online Worship, 8 AM on Zoom

(NOTE: There will be no 8 am Zoom worship on Sunday, June 13 and Sunday, June 27. Please join us in-person on the hill behind the church for 10am services on those dates!)

Join us Sunday morning at 8am as we come together virtually to give thanks and praise to our God! To participate on your computer, tablet, or phone, use the button below. If you already have the Zoom client on your device, you can enter the meeting id and join. Please note that due to security changes, a password is now required for all Zoom meetings.

If this is your first time using Zoom, we recommend joining a few minutes early so that you can get the software up and running. For best results, use a device with a webcam and a pair of headphones. If you need instructions to use Zoom for the first time, you can download a helpful guide below.

Alternative Method – Call-in

If you are unable to use Zoom for whatever reason, you can still join the Zoom service by dialing in on a land line or cell phone, using one of the phone numbers below and entering the Meeting Id when prompted. Please note that you will not be able to see other people, but you will be able to hear and talk with them.

Sunday In-Person Worship, 10 AM Outdoors (weather permitting)

Join us outside the church each Sunday at 10 am (weather permitting) for a service that includes music and, starting on Pentecost (May 23), spiritual communion. For updates on whether in-person services will be held on a given Sunday, check out the St. Stephen’s Facebook page or sign up to receive text alerts (text JOIN to 860-322-6767).

Alternative Method – Live Stream

The live stream for the 10 am service will start about 5 minutes before the beginning of the service. Please note that if you join using the livestream, you will not be able to participate in the interactive parts of the service.


Morning Prayer – Tuesdays and Thursdays

Join us every Tuesday and Thursday at 8 am on Zoom (the same Zoom link as for Sunday 8 am services) for a less-formal morning prayer session to start your day centered and spiritually energized.
