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.
Learning, Living, & Loving God’s Word
From “reformed youth ministries” this study seeks to encourage God’s people to open up the Word and ask the Spirit to work through their reading. Bible 101 is is an introductory study on the doctrine of Scripture . . . hence, 101.
More specifically, it seeks to teach students (and parents and youth leaders) what the Word of God is and how they should read it. There are so many things about life we must be teaching the next generation, but if we boil it down to one thing, Bible reading is essential. Can you think of anything more important? If we raise a future generation of Christians who know how to learn, live, and love God’s Word, we will be raising a generation prepared for whatever this world throws their way.
Taught by Nathan Titus, Pastoral Intern
The Westminster Shorter Catechism
Discussion led by Taylor Martin.
The St. Stephen Summer Sunday School Series (Sx6 for short) will feature a walkthrough of the first 38 questions of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. Join us as Taylor Martin covers some history of the Westminster Assembly, dives into the Scriptures, and looks at some of the doctrines taught in the Catechism Question and Answer format. The Shorter Catechism has a wealth of knowledge, and as it was used by parents to teach their children the doctrines of the Presbyterian and Reformed faith, this class will be great for all ages!
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.
