Need a Night Out?

On May 15th from 6-9pm, you can drop your kids (ages 5 and up) off with ROX and CIA volunteers for just $10 per child ($20 max per family). We’ll provide pizza, a movie, and ice cream and you’re free to do what you’d like for the evening! The best part? All proceeds go to this summer’s Vacation Bible School!

Sign up sheets will be in the church office. Please email Sue at with any questions.

Cradles to Crayon’s Drive

cradles-logoSt. Stephen’s children and youth are organizing a drive to benefit local children in the Boston area through the organization Cradles to Crayons. Currency we are collecting new or gently used clothing and shoes for children. Our collection boxes are in Walton Rodgers Hall.

We will be sorting the clothes in preparation for distribution at our end-of-the-year barbeque on June 14th. We invite all families to participate, as a means to not only help our local community, but also grow together as a family in service.

Youth Leadership Academy

The launch week for the 2015-2016 Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) is July 26-Aug. 1 at the Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center in Greenfield, N.H. Designed for young leaders entering ninth or tenth grade this fall, this special program provides a week-long leadership development and faith formation program, plus all that summer camp has to offer. At the end of the week, participants are introduced to the yearlong Youth Leadership Academy and invited to continue, but signing up for the YLA camp week doesn’t require committing to the yearlong program. Register online here.
