We're a 'Safe Place' for All!

If recent events weigh on your soul and you're looking for a safe place in an uneasy time, we invite you to experience life at St. Stephen United Methodist Church in Mesquite, TX,
where God's unconditional love reigns.

Our new St. Stephen T-shirts show our commitment to being a faith community that welcomes, sustains and protects ALL. In fact, so many of our members wore our new T-shirts that proclaim: "Love is love is love is God" (1 John 4:7), that we had to edit the big picture into three sections, so you could see our smiles of welcome. And these are just the folks who remembered to wear their T-shirts! There's an even bigger community waiting to make friends with you.

Many of us feel the need today for a place that affirms the sacred worth of every individual and believes in the vision of a beloved community of love, peace and justice. St. Stephen strives to be such a place and to create such places in the world, created by God, following the example of Jesus Christ, and energized by the Holy Spirit.

We'd love to have you join us.
