Adult Education

At St. Stephen’s, we value questions as we seek to unite head and heart in a growing journey of exploration and conversation about the Christian life. We offer a variety of adult learning groups, on Sunday morning and during the week.

 

We have five Adult Sunday School classes that meet each Sunday from 9:40-10:40: Challenges & Choices, Seekers, Listening for God, Young Adult Group, and Roots & Wings. Click on the link on the left side for current descriptions of what each class is studying. 

The Adult Education Committee plans and hosts Roundtable Discussions and potluck dinners throughout the year, bringing in engaging speakers. Some of our current Roundtables have focused on important issues like the Refugee Crisis, Immigration, Science & Religion, and Poverty in Norman. Regular events include the Peace Roundtable in January, the Fall Roundtable in October, and an Earth Day event in April. 


A variety of committees have formed that focus on specific issues that came out of our Roundtable events. The Immigration Committee is dedicated to supporting our DACA brothers and sisters and finding ways to offer assistance to all immigrants in Norman and Oklahoma. The Refugee Committee is continuing to find ways to support our refugee neighbors. 


If you like to read, you might enjoy the monthly Fiction Club or one of the Summer Reading Groups. The Fiction Club meets the last Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. 


On Wednesday afternoons, a small group called “Sacred Journey” means from 2:30-4:00 p.m. This wonderful group is made up of mostly retired women (but men are welcome!) who meet to discuss their faith journey with a variety of meaningful curriculum including studies done by Richard Rohr, John Dominic Crossan, Joan Chittister, Nadia Bolz-Weber, and more!

 

Other opportunities for you to connect with others with similar interests include our choir, Top of the Hill monthly luncheon for seniors, and the Men’s Group
