Adult Formation

Book Club

Book Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30-9 pm. We meet to share a potluck meal, fellowship, and book discussion. A different parishioner hosts the gathering each time and all are welcome to attend. Contact the parish office for details on location.

The book for February will be Uncommon Type, a book of short stories by Tom Hanks. Voting on books for the rest of the year is taking place until the meeting on Wednesday, February 13. Please contact the parish office for more information.

Soul Sisters

Soul Sisters is St. Stephen’s spiritual ministry designed specifically for women.  We meet twice monthly on the first and third Thursday.

The first Thursday of the month is a Coffee Klatch held from 9:30-11:30 AM in the chapel at St. Stephens. Children are welcome and coffee and pastries are provided.

The third Thursday of the month is a dinner meeting from 7pm-9pm. Locations vary each month; contact the parish office for more information.

Soul Sisters is a spiritual experience based in Friendship, Encouragement, Support, Gratitude, Hope, and Love, recognizing that together, we are in Unity with God and Each Other, as we share a moment in Life’s journey together as women. Our gathering time is a pause from daily life and its demands to just BE in community and friendship with each other through sharing and caring conversations.

The Diocesan Exodus Big Read

Last year Episcopalians in the Diocese of Southern Ohio joined Bishop Tom Breidenthal in studying the Book of Exodus and reflecting on what it has to teach us about God’s vision for us today.  This year we will begin reading the Book of Luke and the Book of Acts together, starting on December 3, 2018 and continuing through Pentecost in 2019. You can go online to find all of the resources at The DSO Big Read.

Collect Writing

The liturgical reading selectors also practice spiritual discipline and biblical exploration while identifying and reflecting on poetry or and prose that expand our view of the scriptural readings.

Bible Study

Bible Study meets at 9:15 AM in Hobson Hall between the 8:30 and 10:30 services. All are welcome to attend; you do not need to have read the text under discussion first. Currently Bible Study is following the same text as The DSO Big Read  until Pentecost 2019.

Liturgical Groups

As a matter of spiritual discipline and biblical exploration, collect writers read, reflect and write the opening collect once or twice a quarter based on the weekly scriptural texts.

Speaker Series

Currently on hiatus.

In the past, the series has included the Rev. Marcus Borg and the Rt. Rev. John Spong (Diocese of Newark).
