Saint Stephen's Hosting Happening

Saint Stephen’s is hosting Happening #71 on November 3-5 and we want YOU to be a part of it!!!

HAPPENING is one of those things that must be experienced to be fully understood.  During the 3-day weekend, the participants spend time seriously considering the person and teaching of Jesus Christ in a relaxed, fun, informal and loving atmosphere.  They are provided with opportunities to share, discuss, learn and live with fellow Christians in an environment of acceptance and understanding. 

HAPPENING is not a new form of spirituality, nor is it just another weekend retreat.  It is a personal encounter with the living Christ as expressed in the traditions of the Episcopal Church.  Hopefully, those who attend a Happening will join those who have gone before them in their desire to serve the Church, to continue in their commitment to Christ and to look for further opportunities to share with others what they have lived and learned.  More general information about the weekend can be found HERE

Please take a look at our Signup Genius pages to see where you can help with this wonderful weekend. We need meals, snacks, showers, and lots of Saint Stephen’s love!

Thank you in advance for all of your donations and time spent supporting this beautiful weekend!
