On Advent Sunday, a small group met to organize an Episcopal mission in Troy, MI. The "St. Stephen's Episcopal" initial eucharist service was held in 1957 at a nearby school.  The altar, altar rails, communion vessels, lectern, prayer books, hymnals, and various draperies transformed the gym into a sanctuary. Acreage was purchased on Adams Road in Troy, and the congregation moved to the permanent church building on Palm Sunday, 1961. St. Stephen's has experienced continual strong growth in fellowship and spirituality, as well as its size: adding a Sunday School wing in 1963, followed by a new entrance, offices, Narthex, and expanded sanctuary in 1997. Today's families carry on the mission of the church founders.
