Fellowship at St. Stephen’s
In this community we invite you to engage in ministry alongside others so that you may come to know and appreciate God’s life in theirs. We envision of a world in which God’s transforming love is lived, shared, and celebrated by all. Join us in our mission to bring this world about!

Men’s Breakfasts & Dinners
2nd Wednesday of the Month
8:00 am • In the Parish Hall Kitchen
4 Times a Year
6:00 pm • In the Parish Hall Kitchen
The truth is that the men of our church are gifted in diverse and wonderful ways. We owe each other the opportunity to really get beyond just a nodding acquaintance.
That is why we formed the Men’s Breakfast Group. At present, it is a potluck with everyone bringing something to share. We usually have more than enough to feed double the number who come, and average about 8 members each month, with a total group of about 30.
Deep friendships have emerged from these breakfasts and our annual retreats. We circulate the E-Male newsletter every month, which is a terrific reminder of our breakfast together.
The St. Stephen’s Stones is our co-ed softball team. We play in a local church league on most Sunday afternoons from mid-May through early August.
It’s good fun, competitive yet absolutely friendly, and a great group of parishioners from 20s to 50s.
Women’s Activity Group
All women are invited to participate in Walk Around Greenlake (WAG) “First Friday” Walks!
WAG is open to all women and we would love to have you and your friends join us for our first Friday walks.
All women ages 18 to 118 are warmly invited to join us for fun our funwalk once a month at 8:55 AM. We walk at Greenlake Park on the path near the community center and walk counter-clockwise. Join us for the walk and/or coffee afterwards at Starbucks. Anyone is welcome regardless of St. Stephen’s membership. We hope to see you there!
Our activities include potlucks, hiking, craft nights, theater outings, bonfires, kayaking, biking, dinners at ethnic restaurants… anything fun that we can think of!

The gardens on the church grounds are planted and maintained by members of the Guild with generous support from donations and memorial gifts.
Planting events happen several times a year on Saturday mornings, with lunch included.
