Parish Fellowship

St. Stephen’s Men’s Group

The Men’s Group is open to all men in the parish. It usually meets at a restaurant on the 4th Thursday of each month. In some summer months, there is a cookout instead.   For more information on the Men’s Group events please contact Bob Palik.

Sunday Morning Breakfast

Each Sunday morning between the two services, we offer breakfast for a small donation.  Members of the parish provide the fixin’s, and you provide the company.  A volunteer list is posted, and folks take turns being host.  It’s a good way to sort out a sermon or simply sit and relax.

Coffee Hour

Following 10:00 worship, different groups within the church serve drinks and goodies for the enjoyment of all.  This gathering gives newcomers a way to meet and greet members and provides another opportunity for our scattered congregation to deepen friendships.  The children love to grab a cookie and run (or go for a spin with Janet and her wheelchair!).

Bistro St. Stephen’s

Bistro St. Stephen’s is an annual parish event that includes both fellowship and outreach.  Parishioners and their guests dine on a delectable gourmet dinner, enjoy beautiful music and dancing in an exotic environment, and have the opportunity to win fabulous prizes in the evening’s raffle that benefits St. Stephen’s ministries.

This year’s Bistro St. Stephen’s headed south for the Latin flair of Little Havana and the elegance of Miami Beach’s Fontainebleau Hotel.  In the past, guests have experienced the elegance of European dining and the frivolity and excitement of the streets of “N’awlins.”

Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

All women who are members of St. Stephen’s are considered members of the ECW (Episcopal Church Women). Our vision for all women of the Episcopal Church is that we become a vibrant blend of all ages, coming together to enjoy each other’s company in good fellowship and as a peacemaking, healing part of the church. We aspire to be God’s Spark – shining and sharing the love of Christ. St. Stephen’s ECW is involved in a variety of missions and ministries as well as offering support in the local community. Some of these include:

  • Altar Guild
  • Flower Guild
  • Kairos & Kairos Outside Prison Ministry
  • Cursillo
  • Vacation Bible School
  • Regular Fellowship Gatherings such as Swim Parties and Making Ornaments
  • Homeless Ministries
  • Child Development Center
  • St. Stephen’s Children’s and Youth Ministries
