It is the church's job to step outside of its doors and serve as disciples in the community. It is also important that we work with others in the community to work with and serve others. There are several organizations in town that St. Stephen's partners with.

Peace of Pizza

Bootless Stageworks

Bootless Stageworks (“Bootless”) is a Delaware non-profit arts organization providing high-quality theatrical performances of operas, operettas, musical theater and stage plays. Governed and managed entirely by devoted volunteers, Bootless is a unique, small professional (non-equity) theater company employing emerging theater artists and designers from throughout the Delaware Valley.

St. Stephen's has been Bootless' home since 2014.
