Welcome to St. Stephens-Bethlehem United Church of Christ! We are a welcoming, energetic, and eclectic group of Christians meeting at the crossroads of Western New York just outside of the city of Buffalo. Our history goes back to the mid-1800s and five separate churches that have combined to form a unique congregation.
We love to welcome new persons into our family. Our doors open “extra-wide” and we are intentionally inclusive of all races, economic circumstances, sexual orientations, gender identities, etc. We are enthusiastically part of the United Church of Christ, a Christian denomination with a bold witness for justice and a passion for radical hospitality.
Worship is the center of our life together, and we invite you to join us soon on a Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. Nursery is available during worship, and children are invited to Sunday School after a special time in the service just for them. Please be sure to introduce yourself to our greeters and to others and to join us for coffee and conversation afterward!
We are a regional church, drawing active members from Niagara Falls to Hamburg. We are easy to find, located next to Catalyst Fitness (formerly Gold’s Gym) on Wehrle Drive at Union Rd. and very close to the Cleveland Drive exit off I-90 and the Main Street exit of I-290.
Great things are happening every day at St. Stephens-Bethlehem, and we hope you will join us in our journey of faith!
