We are a community of communities, and we gather together not only for worship, learning, and service, but also to share common interests, to make friends, and to strengthen the bonds of fellowship among us. For opportunities to study, learn, and serve, visit our Grow section; for opportunities to make friends and hang out, look below!
We meet once a month (usually the 4th Tuesday) at 10:00am in the Parish Hall St. Stephen’s. Contact Liz Kingsley with questions, the book calendar and meeting dates.
Faith in Action: Caring for Creation
World leaders took a huge step toward mitigating climate change at the recent Paris. Of the many attendees was Rev. Canon Sally Bingham, our diocesan Canon for the Environment, who presented a list of 4,5000 congregations and individuals from across the U.S. who took The Paris Pledge pledging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The focus of the Caring for Creation group is to actively support the goals outlined in the Covenant of California Interfaith Power & Light (CIPL) of which St. Stephen’s is a member. Upon joining CIPL, St. Stephen’s pledged to pursue one or more of the following goals:
All are welcome to come and help keep the gardens of St. Stephen’s beautiful. We come together on the Second Tuesday of the month from 9-11am. We do a little work and have a lot of fun! Ann Lawrence: 299-2608
The men meet one Saturday morning each month. This is an informal group that will meet over coffee, from 8-9:30 a.m., to talk about issues of the day, the spiritual life, etc. Check the Sunday Paper or the Church Calendar for the meeting dates.
We meet 4 Mondays a year. Questions or to receive the Night Readers book list and meeting schedule, email contact Susie White
SALT (Seniors Always Loving Today)
We have introduced a new and different SALT program. Monthly meetings will center around a brown bag lunch and conversation: conversation that includes sharing our lives, memories, joys and challenges; conversation which fosters community and a sense of belonging; conversation which mines the depths of people’s experience and wisdom. I hope you will join us on the third Wednesday of each month, from 11:30 – 1 PM in the Parish Hall. Bring your lunch and come prepared to cultivate a strong sense of Christian community based on shared needs and experience.
Hope to see you there, Rev. Jane or 254-3770 x15
