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 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. There are three tracks for adult Sunday school classes: a theological class, biblical class, and a practical class.
Our Summer Sunday School Electives
This summer, the Adult Sunday School classes will combine and look at the Westminster Confession of Faith. When the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America originally formed in 1788, it adopted (with minor revisions) the 1647 Westminster Confession of Faith. The confession may be old, but it is far from irrelevant. Together, we will study how this document contains “the system of doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures.”
Our Children’s Ministry offers Sunday School Classes specificially designated by age. Our Infant Sunday School class is intentional about speaking God’s truth to our youngest members. Our Toddler Sunday School class is geared to keep little minds engaged, through music, coloring, stories, and interactive playtime. Our lower Elementary Class (Pre-K through 2nd Grade) is full of crafts, music, learning the children’s catechsim 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 well prepare the children for their adolecent years. All of our Sunday School classrooms use 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.
