Advent with St. Stephen’s

Love. Hope. Peace. Joy. 

The Advent is a favored time of year at St. Stephen’s with members and visitors alike. There are many different ways to experience the season. Join us for family time with Advent Wreath Making, the special music of Lessons & Carols, and time to appreciate the Advent invitation to anticipate – quietly, patiently, expectantly, joyfully – the coming of the Savior.
