In our work as St Stephen’s & The Vine we are an open fellowship. We enact engaging conversations. We respond to opportunities for collaboration. And, we build community. All of which are our ways of responding to what is the one constant in our lives and community, the constant of change. This is what it means to live in right relationship with God, ourselves, others and Creation.
Our worship is traditional. Episcopal liturgy from the Book of Common Prayer. The Vine our way of being with others in our community is more missional and emergent. There are things ancient, things modern and things that point the way to the future. From Rummage Sales to Winter Farmer’s Market, from Rites I and II Communion to sharing food through the Food Pantry and the Peace Meal, from Sunday morning Sunday school to Theology on Tap; there are many and different ways to be together, to be a blessing by doing our part. We have traveled a ways and we are still learning.
We hope to meet you soon.
