prayersWelcome

 

St. Stephen's Episcopal Church is a place to grow in faith:  to ask open-ended questions, to experience deep tradition and contemporary reflection, where all sorts and conditions of people are welcomed.  Come and see.   We will welcome you to the communion table, and you can stay for coffee hour! Our worship is on the formal side, but not stuffy.  Some guys wear ties, some women wear jeans ... some little children sit in the front pew and some go down to the (really nice) nursery. Here's a great article if you need more information about what to expect.

 

Fall Classes in the Wings!

After a lovely summer of travel, play and Northwest glories, it’s time to come back together. It feels so great in the fall when the choirs lead us in worship and we reconnect around those practices of faith that nurture and encourage us. Among those practices, St. Stephen’s has a fine tradition of a great coffee hour.

 

On Welcome Back Sunday, September 7, our post-worship feast will feature an ice cream Sundae bar hosted by your vestry.

 

Gathering for prayer and study is another foundation practice of faith. I invite each of you to consider where your spiritual hungers lie, and to find a place to satisfy them. Here is a listing of planned faith formation groups, along with a survey allowing you to let us know what would be most helpful for you.

Our fall tradition of gathering around worship, food, and fellowship continues...

  • Stephen’s table, a time to recenter and reconnect with one another starts up again October 15-November 19, with 5:30 Eucharist, 6:00 dinner, and 6:30-7:30 study group.
  • Our 9:00-10:15 Sunday class will also kick-off September 14.

We have generated several ideas for activites and content for these two times.  Here is your chance to let us know which of these opportunities is most attractive to you, and when you would like to attend them.  Follow the link below to take a quick and easy five question survey!
