We believe spiritual formation to be happening within us and all around us – each and every day. At St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, we look to gather in community to be intentional about Christian Formation during all seasons of life. We value the opportunity to be molded by God and one another and continually seek new ways for the divine to be expressed in community. We encourage wonder and curiosity, promoting a safe space to question and awaken the divine in all of us.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is grounded in the premise that every child is born into relationship with God. We seek to create a sacred, "hands-on" space for the child (called an atrium) where the child and the adult catechist hear, ponder, and celebrate the most essential mysteries of the Christian faith as revealed in scripture and liturgy.
The Episcopal Children's Curriculum focuses on a deeper and broader understanding of the Old and New Testaments, sacraments and the Episcopal Church. A multi-sensory approach engages the mind, body and senses and encourages our young people to read, think, write, listen, discuss and be creative.
We enjoy growing deeper in our understanding of who God is, and strengthening our walk with Christ. Education and formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation. Christian education and formation for adults is offered yearly.
