Small Groups, Classes and Bible Study

SMALL GROUPS AT ST. STEPHEN'S
 
All Christians need the support, accountability, and prayer that come from belonging to a small group of spiritual companions. At St. Stephen’s, we offer a wide variety of small groups, classes and Bible studies. Some groups meet year-round, some for 10-week "covenant periods," some for other periods of time.
 
If you have questions about small groups at St. Stephen's, please contact Gene LeCouteur.
 
If you want to learn about Emmaus Groups, a particular kind of small group, please follow this link.
 
 
SMALL GROUPS AND CLASSES FOR THE SPRING COVENANT PERIOD

Most of the groups listed here do not require registration and are free. If registration is expected, there will be mention of it with the description. If a donation is suggested, it is noted with the class. Groups that meet year-round are indicated by YR. 
 
More groups and classes may be added as we get closer to the beginning of the Spring Covenant Period.
