Through the creative and loving guidance of our Education Director, St. Stephen offers a robust and well-rounded curriculum for teenagers.
From Sunday mornings to Sunday evenings , Wednesdays evenings and excursions and events throughout the year, there’s plenty to choose from.
Sixth through 12th graders gather on Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. during the school year and 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. during summer for field trips and special activities.
These include mission projects, such as helping with Samaritan House, Room in the Inn, CASA House, Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services, Crop Walk and so many more.
We also visit other churches and learn about other religions to be informed by understanding other points of view. Fun times and great discussions!
For those seeking to learn about church membership, faith and the Presbyterian Church, our 6th through 8th graders meet during the school year each Sunday from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m. in the education building.
Classes consists of a long examination of theology, church history, church polity, a summer retreat and a ton of educational and fun activities!
