St. Stephen’s Sunday School is a ministry we offer to all ages.
Sunday school begins at 9:30 AM and ends shortly before the 10:30 AM Worship Service. It’s important for all believers to know the Bible and how to respond to specific challenges we face as Christians. Therefore, our teaching series consists of topical series and books of the Bible. Therefore, we provide three tracks for Sunday school classes: a theological class, biblical class, and a practical class.
We at St. Stephen Reformed Church believe our Sunday school ministry should provide biblical teaching, gospel proclamation, and classes for all ages.
Clear, Biblical Teaching
We are committed to the Bible, the inerrant and inspired Word of God. We are also committed to the doctrine contained within the Westminster Standards as a faithful expression of the teaching of Scripture. Therefore, we seek to connect the Bible to the world in which we currently live, examining the intersection of faith and life.
Sunday school ultimately points us to our faith in the Triune God, who by the plan of the Father, accomplishes redemption by the Son and applies this redemption through the Holy Spirit. By this redemption, we are reconciled to God. He transforms our lives and we live in obedience to him. We read the Bible through the lens of the gospel.
Sunday School For All Ages
The church is given the task to make disciples. Christian discipleship involves training believers from belief to maturity. We seek to learn about God’s character, his redemptive acts throughout history, and his commands for his people from his Word. Each class is designed to the needs of each generation.
Our Spring Sunday School Electives
We offer both an Infant Nursery and a Toddler Nursery during our Sunday School hour. Our Infant Nursery is intentional about speaking God’s truth to our youngest members. Our Toddler Nursery is geared to keep little minds engaged, through music, coloring, stories, and interactive playtime.
Our Children’s Ministry offers Sunday School Classes specially designated by age. Our lower Elementary Class (Pre-K through 2nd Grade) is full of crafts, music, learning the children’s catechism and solid Biblical teaching. Finally, our Upper Elementary class (3rd-5th grade) is purposeful in Scripture memory, going even deeper into biblical and theological concepts to thoroughly prepare the children for their adolescent years. All of our Sunday School classrooms use the Great Commission Publications Curriculum produced by the PCA. We are intentional about providing a safe, fun, biblical environment where children’s faith can be nurtured and developed.
An Overview of Systematic Theology
By Dr. R.C. Sproul
Led by Nathan Titus
In Foundations: An Overview of Systematic Theology, Dr. R.C. Sproul shows that the truths of Scripture relate to each other in perfect harmony. This eye-opening series addresses a myriad of questions about the origin and authority of the Bible, God, the Trinity, man, sin, salvation, revelation, miracles, the church, the end times, and more.
After watching the lesson, there is a time of discussion, facilitated by Pastoral Intern, Nathan Titus.
The class is held in the Youth Room in Lower Bachman, during the 9:30 Sunday School hour.
By Dr. Joel R. Beeke
Led by Gary Snyder
Are you sure you are saved? Many Christians wrestle with this question.
Instead of rejoicing in their salvation, they agonize over guilt and worry over whether they’re in Christ at all. This is a series to comfort struggling Christians, encourage those who are assured, and caution those who take their assurance for granted.
This class will is offered live at 9:30 AM Sundays at St. Stephen Reformed Church.
We also offer this class online through Zoom meetings.
