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 Spring Sunday School Electives
The Gospel According to Moses
The second class will be studying Exodus and will be led by Dr. Sacks and Rev. Stamper. Join this “odd couple” as they examine Exodus to understand the importance of the exodus from Egypt, the law and God’s presence for his people. The class will look at specific passages and discuss overall themes.
This class will meet in Lower Backman Hall.
Journey Back to the Time of Jesus
Noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan, will take you on a journey back to the time of Jesus. Marvel at Herod’s palace, scramble among the ruins of Qumran and travel to other locations in Israel. By weaving together the Bible’s historical, cultural, religious and geographical contexts, Ray reveals unique insights into the Scriptures’ significance for modern believers.
