Are you new to the St. Stephen's community? Or have you been here for quite a while, but have never gotten around to checking out the adult Sunday School classes? Well, consider this your personal invitation to come visit and see what fits you best.

We won't insult your intelligence or try to indoctrinate you. We won't assume that you are a Bible scholar or a great theologian, nor will we pretend that faith has no role in dealing with the pressing crises, injustices, and concerns of our world. Science is valued and respected here. Questions of all sorts are always welcome!

So what's happening this week in our adult classes? You can find that information on the list posted right across from the church office on Sundays. It is updated every week.
