Service and community are at the core of St. Stephen's identity as we strive to be the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus Christ — in our neighborhood, in Charlotte, and in the world.
St. Stephen regularly partners with a variety of community organizations and nonprofits in the Charlotte area and beyond. We provide direct volunteer support, meals, supplies, and financial assistance.
Many of our missions groups are active year-round, while others are seasonal.

St. Stephen is a host for Roof Above’s Room in the Inn program. Now in our 27th season, the church opens its facilities every Friday night during December 1 – March 31 to provide shelter and food for the homeless during the winter months. Volunteers pick up assigned guests from Roof Above, offer cots and a warm safe place to sleep in the Fireside Room with volunteer hosts, serve two meals (dinner and breakfast), provide a bag lunch to go, and return guests the following morning. Last year, St. Stephen provided over 100 available beds with the help of 300+ volunteers.
