Adult Connections

At St. Stephen, you will find opportunities for fellowship and friendship, spiritual education and discipleship, service and missions — no matter your interests, skillsets, or season in life. We believe fellowship, discipleship, and service are key components in the life of a follower of Jesus.

Sunday Groups for Adults

New guests can cultivate meaningful connections and take their first step toward small group involvement in one of these three Sunday small groups. We also offer a variety of other Sunday small groups, so if these don't seem to fit you, we encourage you to explore additional groups listed under "More Adult Programs" below.

FaithLab — New in Fall 2023

Exploring and experimenting with our faith journey: Learn more about church history, the traditions and history of Methodism, and deepen your faith and spiritual practices. This open group of relaxed conversation and fellowship is perfect for everyone, including longtime members, regular attenders, or first-time and returning guests.
Coming Fall 2023.
