Our Strawberry Festival is our largest fundraiser at St. Stephen's. It is typically held the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. We see thousands of people at this festival, where we welcome vendors from all over the area and state. If you are interested in participating, planning, making shortcakes, or would like to rent a vendor booth, please contact Ellen Kirby.
As one of our fundraisers, our Oysters & Oldies Festival also supports our community outreach efforts. The Oysters & Oldies Festival is held annually on the first Saturday in December. This a community event that gets us all in the kitchen together making chili and setting up oyster shucking tables. If you would like to know how you can volunteer at this event please contact Bill Kirby.
St. Stephen’s Trifles and Treasures Thrift Shop is an important part of our parish's community outreach. Not only does it provide funds for our parish to support our local community, but our Thrift Shop offers a wide variety of adult and children's clothing, jewelry, household and office items, books, furniture, and more. In addition to being a source of very affordable clothing and household items, the Thrift Shop also reaches out to the community in a variety of ways, by providing free vouchers for clothing and household items for victims of fire and other disasters in partnership with Warsaw United Methodist Church’s Food Bank Program. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our thrift shop manager Carolyn Bain. (804) 724-4135
