All the children of God, of all ages, are welcome in worship at St. Stephen's. We believe that formation - living more deeply and intentionally into who we are and whose we are - is a lifelong process. Sunday worship is our primary way to come together to hear and respond to God's word as a community. In addition, we believe that working together to serve each other and the community helps us grow together in Christ. Click here to go to the Ministries page to see how you can get involved. We sometimes also offer specific educational opportunities. See below for our current offerings.

During Advent, we're having prayer and Bible study on Wednesdays at 12 noon and Thursdays at 6 pm. Both days will be the same, except that on Wednesdays, we'll share a simple potluck meal. You are welcome to drop in any time. Both groups will meet in the family room. We'll be doing Lectio Divina (holy reading) of Luke's Christmas story. Lectio Divina is a very ancient and simple practice. A piece of scripture is read aloud. After that, the participants share a word or phrase image that caught their attention, without adding explanation or details. The same piece of scripture is read aloud again, and then participants share what they noticed about the text, which might include things that are troubling or confusing. At this point, there is discussion among participants. Finally, the text is scripture is read aloud again, and participants each share what they feel the Holy Spirit is calling them to do in the text.
