Sermons

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.
