World Day of Prayer


Come join the celebration of the World Day of Prayer here at St. Stephen’s on Friday, March 6th in the Nave at 7 p.m. This is an open invitation to the entire Oak Ridge community. The prayers of people around the globe will resound throughout the day as they participate in the worship service written by women of Zimbabwe. The theme for this year is “Rise! Take your mat and walk”.


Support St Stephen’s Outreach When You Shop


St Stephen’s Outreach is now listed with the Kroger Community Rewards Program as a recipient charity.  With the Kroger Community Rewards Program, the customer’s use of their Rewards Card accumulates an additional benefit to St Stephen’s if the customer chooses.   Customers must access the website, and select St Stephen’s as their recipient organization.  This is an entirely additional promotion and does not affect the “fuel points” promotion. 


Please sign up.  We now have 17 people/households signed on and have already received a first check in the amount of $235!  Here is what you need to know:

1.      Access and either sign on, if you have before,  or create an online presence by putting in your email name and making up a password.

2.      If you already have a “Plus Shoppers Card”, go to the bottom of the screen and enter St Stephen’s as your selected charity, NPO number 75653.

3.      If you do not have a “Plus Shoppers Card”, you may generate one on the website using your phone number as an identifier, then select St Stephen’s for Community Rewards.

4.      Now whenever you shop at Kroger and either swipe your “Shopper Card” or enter your phone number as the “alternate ID”, St Stephen’s Outreach gets a contribution based on the amount of the purchase.

  Rewards from all of St Stephen’s friends are accumulated quarterly. So we need lots of friends!   Please sign up.

On every first and fifth Sunday, the loose offering is designated for the Rector’s Discretionary Fund.

This fund is used to help the less fortunate in our community with rent, utilities, etc.

Please be generous.


ON-LINE CONTRIBUTION OPTION now available on the website.  For those of you who have been asking for this convenience, pledge payments and/or special donations can now be made through our website (  While offered through PayPal, it does not require a PayPal account.  Any standard credit card may be used.  If you choose this option, please be sure to indicate what the donation is given for on the final payment page.


CHECKS / CASH DONATIONS.  We are always very grateful for your contributions to the church, but PLEASE - clearly mark the check, or the envelope if giving cash, with exactly what the money is for (i.e., pledge, food baskets, discretionary fund, EYF mission trip, Wed PM supper, altar flowers, Haiti fund, memorial gift-with the name included, etc.).  Without this information, the counters have a difficult time deciding where to put the contribution and ultimately may not deposit it as you intended.  Thank you.
