There's a place for you here.

Small Groups, Classes and Bible Study

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.
