Youth from St. Stephen's went to Azua in the Dominican Republic last summer and conducted Vacation Bible School for the children of two area churches and the surrounding area. This video was presented at the Rector's Forum on October 6 as a summary of their time there. Slides and video of the trip are interspersed with video of their impressions several months later.

This service is open, inclusive, and peaceful. Its roots are in the ancient church, but it offers a new path for many who had given up on Christianity. Learn what makes this service unique, and why churches from across the world are incorporating similar practices into their worship life.
