St. Stephen Lutheran Preschool now

Enrolling for 2018-2019


Registration is open to children ages three to five. We provide a kind and friendly environment in which each child is able to expend his or her cognitive, social, physical, and emotional development, focusing on a positive preschool experience. We introduce preschool families to the St. Stephen congregation and ministry, and invite them to become participants in the study of God’s word.

Two- and three-day classes are offered for three-year-olds; three- and four-day classes are offered for four-year-olds; and five-day classes are offered for five-year-olds. See the Preschool tab at the top of the page and click on the Registration form. Print the form and send it to St. Stephen Preschool. For additional information, contact the Church/Preschool Office at 757-229-6688. Classes are filling up ~ register today!

Did You Know that the ELCA is

the Most Ecumenical Church Body In the United States?


Always new
Since 1997, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has been in Full Communion (with interchangeable sacraments and clergy) with the Episcopal Church USA, the Presbyterian Church USA, the United Methodist Church, the United Church of Christ, the Reformed Church in America and the Moravian Church.  (None of them are in Full Communion with each other, only with the ELCA.)

That is why, each Sunday, prayers are offered for congregations of these churches in Full Communion with the ELCA: to highlight our unique openness to other traditions.
