The St. Stephen’s community is fortunate to include adults of all ages. A balance of younger and older adults continuously energizes and enriches the congregation with creativity and energy. Our Adult programs feature Bible study, spiritual enrichment, and fellowship for a diverse range of ages, helping our members find commonality, community, and friendship within the parish. While some of our activities have changed during this time of COVID, many of our offerings are going strong in the virtual world.
Christian faith formation is lifelong growth in the knowledge, service, and love of God as followers of Christ and is informed by Scripture, Tradition, and Reason. St. Stephen’s offers a variety of opportunities throughout the year to stimulate adults to expand their Christian education. We have several adult formation offerings this fall. Watch the events page for details of upcoming formation opportunities.

MEN’S & WOMEN’S CHEF SOCIETIES
Men’s and Women’s Chef Societies are fun, casual groups made up of folks who (mostly!) enjoy cooking and (always!) enjoy eating with a dose of lively conversation. These groups take a team approach to their gatherings so that participants take turns cooking through the year. All levels of cooking experience are welcome to join in!
At St. Stephen‘s Church we strive for a truly inter-generational experience and our seniors play a vital role in all aspects of parish life. Our Senior Ministry offers parishioners encouragement and support centered on spiritual growth and development. The Senior Ministry team develops and offers programs throughout the year. These offerings typically include Senior Fellowship Luncheons and a Senior Newsletter (view newsletter archive here) which is mailed to our senior members quarterly. During these times, these offerings have been suspended and we look forward to resuming them when it’s safe for our seniors to gather in-person. Watch the events page for future Senior Ministry events.
