When was the last time you laughed until it hurt, or shared a meal with friends you felt you’ve known forever? You don’t have to look far to find your people here.
Whether you are a newcomer or a longstanding member, St Stephen’s offers many ways to get involved and find meaningful connections with others. Special events occur on a regular basis at St. Stephen’s. The events lists below happen each year, but… be on the look-out for pop-up fun too!
We welcome back the entire parish each fall with a good old fashioned pig roast and picnic. Plans are underway now for this year’s event – we look forward to welcoming everyone back with some delicious BBQ!
Community Dinners – Saturday, October 28, 2017
Periodically each year Community Dinners provide parishioners a chance to gather in small in-home groups for an informal evening of dining and conversation. Groups of six to eight people are assigned to each host location. This is a great way for you to get to know the folks you may otherwise see only in the pews on Sunday.
Bash After Dark – Saturday, November 11, 2017
Our annual fundraiser happens each fall and is St. Stephen’s party to celebrate and raise money for our outreach endeavors in the community. The ever popular, ever fabulous Bash After Dark includes great food, wine and beer, and fun with fellow parishioners. Guests can bid on wonderful items and experiences in the silent and live auctions while supporting the work we do to share God’s love outside our walls. Look for more information in the coming months!
Advent Wreath Making – Wed, Nov 29 and Sunday, Dec 3, 2017
Advent Wreath Making is an annual family favorite. Families of St. Stephen’s come together every year to make this a fun tradition. Create an advent wreath that you can take home with you and enjoy together during the week leading up to Christmas.
Lenten Fish Fry & Bingo – Friday, March 2, 2018
Our Fish Fry and Bingo night is an AWESOME way to chase away the winder blues each Lenten season. We do it old school with a deliciously prepared fish dinner and animated bingo calling.
Fourth of July on the Lawn
Free music. Free hot dogs. A great parade view. Need we say more? The Edina July 4th parade passes right in front of our doors and we put on a big community welcome each year. This event is a great opportunity for fellowship with other parishioners and with the community at large.
