Society of St. Stephen

The Society of St. Stephen is a community assistance ministry. It is led and staffed by a team of volunteers committed to ongoing ministry with those in need.

“They asked only one thing, that we remember the poor, which was actually what I was eager to do.” Galatians 2:10

  • Lead annual Christmas Heart ministry providing age-specific gifts for community children

How we do it
