Christian Formation

At St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, we believe that Christian formation is a lifelong journey. It is our conviction that God forms us into the people God has created us to be as we study scripture, learn the teachings and traditions of the church, and listen to one another’s stories.

Sunday Mornings during the Academic Year

Adults and Teenagers

During the academic year, all ages gather at 9:30 am for Sunday School. Our teenagers and adults gather in the parish hall. Over snacks and coffee, we discuss matters of faith. We always invite newcomers to join us for our lively conversation and learning. 

Pre-K through 7th Grade

We have a few different classes in the Early Building for children. Our caring volunteers delight in helping children grow in faith. We would love to welcome more children into the parish. We welcome you to give us a call if you are trying to decide if St. Stephen’s could be a good fit for your family. 

Intergenerational Learning 

On a few special Sundays in the year, our whole parish gathers together for Christian Formation. On Palm Sunday, we enjoy hands-on learning leading up to Holy Week. On the First Sunday of Advent, we prepare Advent Wreathes together.
