Get Involved

St. Stephen’s provides many opportunities for people to get involved in worship services and in service throughout the community.  If you would like to be involved with any of the following ministries, please contact the members listed for each ministry.

Worship on Wednesday (WOW)

Tired from a full day at work and don’t feel like fixing dinner? Tired of just the TV for company? Join us on Wednesday nights for Worship on Wednesday (WOW)!

  • Dinner at 6:00 p.m.

  • Holy Eucharist (1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesdays) or Evening Prayer (2nd and 4th Wednesdays) 7:00 p.m. 

  • Discussion, various topics including Wednesday night Gospel reading, 7:30 – 8:30.

Freewill offerings are gratefully accepted, but not expected. You don’t have to bring anything but yourselves and a healthy appetite. Come join us for all, or part.  If you would like to participate in the preparation of these meals, or clean up.  Please contact Marjorie, Dorothy or Daniela.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care providers are available around the clock to provide services to those in need. For Pastoral Care please call (385) 242-9926.

Music

St. Stephen’s is blessed to have music provided by talented musicians Barbara Burton and Sandy Garrard.

Sunday Service

St. Stephen’s is a welcoming community of people from all backgrounds. All are welcome!  We are always looking for people to get involved with this valuable ministry, as lay readers eucharistic ministers and altar guild.  Please contact Dorothy or Fran.

Children’s Church

St. Stephen’s Children’s Church is scheduled to begin at 11:00 am.  This will mirror regular church but will be geared to children ages 3 through 12.  The children will join the adults for Eucharist.

Electronic Media

​Check with Marjorie, Martin, or Daniela to see how you can become involved with either the Web Site, Facebook, or Instagram.

Food Bank

St. Stephen’s works with the Granger Community Christian Church to provide food bank services to the community. If you are in need of food bank services, please contact the Granger Community Christian Church at (801) 968-3301.

If you would like to volunteer, please go to the Granger Christian Church at 2:00 p.m. on the first Monday of the month, or on subsequent Mondays from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

Prison Ministry

St. Stephen’s partners with the US Dream Academy (http://www.usdreamacademy.org) and St. Francis of Assisi Church (http://www.stfrancischristianchurch.com) to provide needed items and gifts for the children of prisoners at the Utah State Prison every Christmas. Inspired people can take on the challenge of buying a few gifts and spreading God’s love to kids and families in need. We also provide a fun Christmas party with food and fellowship to give out the gifts, and we can always use help with food, hosting, and hospitality! In doing so, we live into Jesus’ commandment to care for those in prison (Matthew 25:39-40). If you are interested in helping, contact us at st.stephens@comcast.net.

Second Saturday

Second Saturday is held on the Second Saturday of each month from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m. (Or any time in between.)  We begin with a simple lunch,  In the summertime, some have opted to come from 9:00 until noon, finishing with lunch.  This is perfectly ok if someone is willing to be here to make sure the doors are opened.

Second Saturday offers a chance for you to use or discover your own hidden talents and gift, while being together with people you know and trust.

This once a month get together can be rich, rewarding,  and fulfilling for all who take part; an experience where we can each share, learn and grow; a chance for each one of us to fully live out our St. Stephens Mission Statement.

If you have knitting or other crafts to do, bring it with you, and we will be sure to have some extra supplies for those of you who would like to learn how.

If you have other parish projects to do, this is a way to do them without feeling so alone in your task.

In short, It is a catch-all for many of those little projects you have, both for the parish and the community at large, that would go a little faster or easier if not tackled alone.

Education Ministry

Jesus promises us an abundant life (John 10:10) of dignity and harmony. To live this life we need good jobs, and good jobs now require more than just a high school diploma. However, less than 20% of students from our community go on for more school after high school and many become trapped in a life of poverty. St. Stephen’s partners with the Granite School District to help educate students and parents about the importance of post-secondary education. We also help get students signed up for Federal Financial Aid which makes college possible. If you have a passion for helping our youth have a better life you can help. Immediately we need people to be trained in helping people fill out financial aid forms, we can also use people to provide food and hospitality at various events around the west side of the Salt Lake Valley. If you are interested in helping, please contact Martha.

    When I click on calendar it still shows WOW through August. Does it take time for the calendar to change? I am not very webpage savvy.
