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!

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”  ~John 13:35

The men of St. Stephen’s are gifted in diverse and wonderful ways.  The Men’s Breakfast Group offers a regular opportunity for the men of St. Stephen’s to get to know one another better. At present, it functions as a potluck where everyone brings something to share. The group numbers about 30 members, with an average of about 8 members attending breakfast each month.

Deep friendships have emerged from these breakfasts and from the annual men’s retreats. We circulate a monthly e-mail newsletter, which also serves as a terrific reminder of our breakfast together.
