What to Expect


Warm Friendly Faces!

St. Stephen’s is located at 2259 Springs Road, Hickory, NC. Our worship services are steeped in Lutheran tradition with a Keyboardist musician blended in both traditional hymns and contemporary music. Holy Communion is celebrated every week.

We welcome everyone in Christ’s name; we care for others in Christ’s love; and we grow together in Christ’s spirit.  You are welcome to come just as you are!

Children are always welcome in worship! While they may not understand all that happens, it is important for the whole family to be involved in worship.

Here people of all ages come together to worship God and to connect with and care for one another. We come as we are, we gather for prayer and praise, and to be fed and sent into the world to live more fully as the people God calls us to be in the world.

Most of all, we are a church that cares for one another and for our community. We feed the homeless on the first Sunday of each month and offer a food pantry to our community each Wednesday of the week. We dig deep into God’s Word through study of His Word, and worship Him with everything we have in our hearts.

Come and See! Jesus Christ is to be experienced!
