St. Stephen’s offers a variety of programs to support our members in their ongoing formation. Whether you are looking for a short-term series, ongoing opportunities, Bible studies, special workshops, or something that is a bit different, we have something that will fit your needs!
This page is updated with current offerings, so be sure to check back to see what is new! If you have a question about one of the programs below, or have an idea for a new formation opportunity, please contact our Rector, Adam Yates.
Lenten Study Program: Bonhoeffer’s “Discipleship”
This Lent we will be studying together Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s seminal work, “Discipleship.” This class will meet weekly to pray together and discuss the chapters of the book while reflecting on the way’s that Bonhoeffer’s words offer us insight into our own lives as followers of Jesus in the modern world.
Our group will meet on Thursday evenings from 6-7pm, starting on Thursday, March 2. A full schedule with chapter assignments will come soon.
To reserve a spot in the group, please use the link below, and be sure to order a copy of your book in advance.

While many versions of Bonhoeffer's book exist, and participants are welcome to use any translation and edition of their choosing, we are encouraging everyone to make use of the newer, academic translation from the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works series. Specifically, we will be making use of the Reader's Edition, although you are welcome to purchase the more expensive research version, which includes extensive editorial footnotes.
