The holiday season is approaching us and there will be many distractions that will take our focus off the real reason of the season. Before we get too wrapped up in the sales, long lines, gifts and holiday gatherings, let's make a commitment to do something that is really important. This year, on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, St. Stephen A.M.E. Church is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving, by supporting our Community Outreach programs. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. Each week, we serve hundreds of families at our Soup Kitchen in order to address the injustices of hunger and poverty in Chicago. On November 27th, help us to continue to provide for families during the holiday season. Your efforts will have a direct impact on the East Garfield Park community.

St. Stephen Capital Campaign: Building Our Future

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 we began our 3 -year Capital Campaign. The monetary goal for the 2017-2020 campaign is $530,000.00. This campaign is needed to do a complete renovation of the existing edifice in order to meet the ongoing ministry and mission needs within the church and in the surrounding community.
