St. Stephens Episcopal Church needs partner to make use of facility

From Western North Carolina-

A church building that has been used to serve the Bouchelle Street community in Morganton for decades needs a new servant-minded occupant.

St. Stephens’ Episcopal Church currently sits vacant in its spot where members congregated from 1949 to 2014. In 2014, the church combined congregations with St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, located on St. Mary’s Church Road, and became known as St. Mary’s and St. Stephens’ Episcopal Church, according to the church rector, the Rev. Jim Dahlin. The combined congregation now meets at the St. Mary’s facility.

Church members do not want to sell the St. Stephens’ building, but are looking for another church, ministry or nonprofit organization to partner with them in using the building as a base to make a positive impact in the immediate community, said church member Allen Fullwood.
