First Time Visitor
We invite you to worship with us on Sunday mornings and want to personally welcome you to St. Stephen United Methodist Church in Arlington, Texas where our church has a long and rich history of effective ministry.
Let us join together this Sunday for worship either in person or on Facebook. Based on the recommendation of the CDC and other government authorities, we have decided to amend our mask policy. Guided by our love for neighbor and concern for others, we encourage the wearing of masks and still STRONGLY recommended the wearing of masks ESPECIALLY for those who are not fully vaccinated. We will no longer require worshipers to wear a mask while in worship at St. Stephen.
If you are not comfortable worshiping in person, our worship team will still provide online worship and we encourage you to tune in on the St Stephen's Facebook page Sunday morning. You can also watch it later it that better fits your schedule. Please let us know if you experience any technical difficulties so we can try to mitigate them.
If you are in need of pastoral care, please contact our interim pastor, Pastor Kaiya Kershaw at 817-584-2780 or contact Susan in our office at 817-460-8655.
Our Worship Service starts at 10:45 A.M. in the Sanctuary.
Our greeters will meet you at the front door and gladly answer any questions that you have as well as directing you to where ever you want to go.
St. Stephen United Methodist Church is located at 1800 W. Randol Mill Road. For weekday business, the main entrance is on the east side of the building under the covered portico. The primary entrance on Sundays is the north side front of the church facing Randol Mill and is the only set of doors on that side. The front doors are only open for worship services and special events. Use the map link and directions for reference on getting to the church. If you need further assistance, please call the church office at 817-460-8655.
If You Have Small Children
We would love to see you and your small children, unfortunately, with the Covid-19 precautions, we can not offer our nursery at this time. Normally, we have excellent nursery care for children up to age 5 at St. Stephen staffed by at least two paid nursery attendants who have completed annual MinistrySafe training and background checks.
The Nursery is located in the Education Building on the west side of the main building. The door faces the parking lot. The Nursery is in the second room on the right. Our nursery staff opens the doors 10 minutes prior to Sunday School, worship services, and other events. You are more than welcome to come in and help your child get acclimated if need be.
The staff will welcome all children up through age 5 or if they are in Kindergarten. First graders are occasionally permitted on a case-by-case basis. We will provide a healthy snack, such as graham crackers, Goldfish or Cheerios. However, you are welcome to bring anything that your child needs. If applicable, please bring extra diapers, wipes, and complete change of clothing for oops times.
When you check your child in at the nursery, we will ask you for your cell phone number, and where you will be located in the church during your child’s stay. This way, we can send you a text message , or come and find you if you are needed. Please visit our Children's page for more information.
