Concerts at St. Stephen's
St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Wilmington, Delaware launched its new music series, Concerts at St. Stephen’s in 2018. In the congregation’s recent history, St. Stephen’s has been recognized for raising awareness of hunger and food insecurity through hosting one of the largest food pantries in the state of Delaware.

In its belief that beautiful music is an inherent part of community worship, inspiring and enhancing our appreciation of the glory of God, St. Stephen’s offers all events free of charge and open to the general public.
