lenten dramas

Come and journey with us to the cross.
Lenten Dramas return to St. Stephen's during the 10:45am worship services on the five Sundays in Lent.
Each drama is based on the Gospel reading for the day. In this cycle of the church year, many Gospel readings come from the Gospel of John and are among the longest recorded conversations with Jesus. Please be sure to join us on Sunday mornings, in person or on Facebook.
