Our steeple was repaired and our bell was being recoated.

The Bell Tower replacement is just one part of the repairs and renovations of St. Stephen's done in the past few years. Much of the redwood siding and trim has been replaced as well as the front door, complete exterior painting, refinishing the wood floor in the Parish Hall and work on the heating system. With a building over 150 years old, there's still lots more to do.

 

Please help us keep our historic Carpenter Gothic church in good shape and ready to serve another 150 years.
