EVENTS

Lifelong Learning

Sundays through May 19

9:15 am

Join our next Lifelong Learning session led by Father Kevin, studying the book Surprise the World: The Five Habits of Highly Missional People.

Sharing your faith doesn’t have to be complicated.


Christians are called to be a witness for Christ in daily life, to surprise people around us with the good news of the gospel. Yet putting that mission into regular practice can seem overwhelming. Author Michael Frost, a renowned expert on evangelism, offers refreshingly simple tactics to make evangelism fulfilling, exciting, and effective.

Surprise the World teaches clear and practical tools for making evangelism part of your daily life. This short and easy read covers the BELLS method, along with thought-provoking questions and prompts for applying each habit. You’ll learn about each of the five habits:

  • Bless others

  • Eat together

  • Listen to the Spirit

  • Learn Christ

  • Understand yourself as Sent by God into others’ lives

Classes continue weekly through May 19, and Bishop Read will lead the final class discussion!

A few copies of the book are available for purchase in the Church Office.

"Set Sail" for Vacation Bible School

Monday, July 29 through Friday, August 2

9 am - 2 pm

Join us for an awesome week of exploring the Bible through recreation and crafts and meet some new friends along the way! Vacation Bible School (VBS) will take place at St Stephens, both indoors and outdoors.

 

Come aboard! Feel the warm sunshine and cool breeze as we set sail on a new adventure. An ocean cruise is a perfect place for relaxing, having fun, and making new memories with people we love! When we embark on a journey like this, we can trust our captain to lead us to our destination – and we can trust God the same way! On this 5-day voyage, kids will develop a deeper understanding of how to follow Jesus as they learn that God shows us how to love others, gives us gifts to serve others, prepares us to share good news, and loves spending time with us!

 

What does your child need each day?  A water bottle with their name on it, lunch, and a sense of adventure! (Full list t0 follow)

 

On Friday, August 2, campers should bring a bathing suit and a towel for a day filled with “cruise activities” and water fun!  Additionally, families are invited to join the crew at 1:00 pm on that Friday for an end of VBS celebration!!

 

The cost is $40 per child. There is a $80 max per family! Registration is already open - link here, or on the website under Events-VBS, or Forms-VBS.
