Fellowship and Faith Growing
Lutheran worship brings the reality of Christ’s love to his people. Christian fellowship embraces our families in the love and support of Jesus.

The following is an article I wrote for our St. Stephen newsletter, “Connect”. This article outlines the reasons behind my decision to remain as the pastor of St. Stephen Lutheran.
“So that we can grow together with you”
“Caleb Bassett, St. Stephen Lutheran Church, Fallbrook, CA, Arizona-California District.” That simple little phrase, announced by WELS President Mark Schroeder back in May of 2010, is engraved on my memory. That day I received the divine call to be your pastor.
Here’s a real-life example of the blessings Christian estate planning brings.
On October 20 we will be receiving a special presentation from one of our national church body’s Christian giving counselors on the topic of Christian estate planning. Pastor Rich Kogler (whom many people know from his time as pastor of St. Stephen Lutheran) will explain ins and outs of the topic and present attendees with compelling reasons to consider making a Christian estate plan.
We worship each Sunday at 9:30 AM.
Worship is the beating heart of the Christian faith and an important part of life at St. Stephen. We invite you to take part in the rich and vibrant tradition of Lutheran worship. 2 Corinthians 5:21 tells us, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” There is no better news in all the world than this simple sentence.
