Welcome to St. Stephen's Lutheran Church, ELCA

Edited 3/29/20

We at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church take the health and well-being of our congregational family very seriously. With the growing concerns related to COVID-19 Coronavirus and the recommendations from the Governor as well as Bishop Smith and the NC Synod, we will be canceling all Worship services through the end of April.

Meals on Wheels will continue as well as our administrative and janitorial services at the church.

As always, please contact the church office or Pastor Bolick if you have any questions, concerns, or needs.




When You Want To Worship

Hello Family of God,

I would just like to share a few thoughts. A little earlier, Elaine and I watched the Palm Sunday service together. It is so nice and we are very fortunate to have this wonderful servant of God looking out for us and serving us. Whether in the Chapel, the Pulpit, his den or dining room, or among the huge stones in Blackberry, he is delivering the messages of God’s praise and mercy to us. 

Please remember though, that when you want to worship, our Lord is the only one that you need with you. He is in the book on your shelf, table, or night stand. When you next feel that you want to worship with Him, please consider these passages… Psalm 29:1-2, Hebrews 12:28, James 4:8, and Psalm 12:1

In these pages you can praise the Lord, thank the Lord, come near to the Lord, and offer yourself to the Lord.


Father God, all Powerful, Giver of Life we bow before you and acknowledge your supreme being. Thank you for taking dust and making us into beings that can show love for and comfort each other. Thank you for the feeling of nearness as we talk with you. Please use us Lord to care for your many creations and for each other. In this difficult time Father show us how to lean on you and find the answers we need to comfort and heal all of your children.


Love and Blessings,
Gene Frye, Church Council President
