Excellent preaching is a hallmark of St. Stephen's Church. Sermons given at the Sunday morning services--usually by a member of our clergy staff, though we have guest preachers as well--are posted on this site as soon as they are available, in text and/or audio format. We also post reflections delivered by clergy and lay people at the 5:30 p.m. contemplative service when they are available.
If you are looking for a sermon or reflection that is not offered below, please send an email request and include as much information as you can: the name of the preacher or reflector, which service (morning or evening), and the date.

Sermons preached during Year B, beginning November 30, 2014 (Advent I).
Audio recordings: As we prepare to vacate the church building so it can be renovated and restored, our sound system will also undergo changes, so there will be a period of time in 2015 when we are unable to record sermons. We will provide texts whenever possible, though some preachers deliver their sermons without texts. We appreciate your understanding.
Looking for an older sermon? Sermons preached during the most recent Year A (Advent 2013 through the season after Pentecost 2014) are here. Year C sermons (Advent 2012 through Christ the King 2013) are here. Sermons preached during the latter part of Year B (fall 2012) are here. Older sermons are here.
