Sunday mornings for adults
On Sunday mornings, adults, like children and youth, are invited to take part in education and formation offerings between the 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services (roughly 10:10 a.m.-11 a.m.). Unless otherwise noted, these opportunities do not require registration and they are open to all. You do not have to be a "member" of St. Stephen's to take part.
The Sunday Forum
A weekly speakers series featuring teaching and presentations by the rector, the Rev. Gary Jones, as well as other clergy and lay staff, and outstanding guest speakers. The forum takes place in the Large Fellowship Hall. The schedule of speakers and topics is here. Audio of past forums is here.
Many Parents, One Vine
Many parents find themselves seeking opportunities to meet other parents for conversation and reflection on their lives from a spiritual perspective, as well as make new friends or share some collective wisdom on the joy and challenges of being a parent. “Many Parents, One Vine” is a space to grow in faith and connect with other parents in mutual affirmation. We believe that raising children is a cooperative, not competitive, enterprise. Together, connected to the vine, we are stronger parents. Come for coffee and fellowship, a brief summary of the suggested (not required) reading, and ample time for peer-facilitated small group discussion. This group meets in Room 14 (top floor of the parish house). More details are here.
The inquirers class is offered three times a year at St. Stephen's Church. The fall and spring sections take place on Wednesday evenings; the winter section, which begins in January, takes place on Sunday mornings during the education period (10:10 a.m.-11 a.m.). You can read more about the inquirers class here.
