The best answer: hmmm, let’s talk about it. Talking, or as United Methodists say – holy conferencing – is a foundational element to how we as United Methodists understand our faith. From our perspective, God and humanity have an ongoing and dynamic relationship, with many arguments, wrestling, joys, and hugging. We believe God is active in the life of the global Church and is often revealing new wisdom to us; therefore, United Methodists convene annually to hear what each of us seems to be hearing from the Lord. In light of our penchant for conversation and listening to one another, we hold true to certain core convictions of the Christian faith, yet remain open to God telling us something new!



Founded in 1791, St. Stephen's United Methodist Church is a community of individuals covenanting together by faith in God to be a beacon of love to all who are in need, whether in Marblehead, the North Shore of Massachusetts, or around the world.
