Weekly Schedule of Online Adult Sunday School Classes

About Adult Sunday School at St. Stephen’s

St. Stephen’s Church  offers a wide variety of Sunday school classes for adults. Currently, while most adult Sunday school classes meet online on Zoom, some  classes are starting to meet in-person at the church.  Each class has its own personality and focus.  

There are no formal requirements to participate in Sunday school. We encourage everyone to sample a variety of the classes to discover the class that best suits their needs. All classes welcome visitors! Please join us any Sunday or call the class lead or the church office during the week for more info. Below is our current schedule of Sunday School classes. If you know of a St. Stephen’s group that is not included here, please contact our communications department by clicking  here.

  • On September 19th, 2021,  we will begin the Amplify Media Study using videos from Professor NT Wright on the Apostle Paul and the key books he wrote.
  • Joy Class will not meet on Oct 10, 2021, as many members will be on travel.
  • This series is called: Simply Jesus with Professor N.T. Wright, This includes 20 sessions with several videos. This is a summary of the lessons planned:
    • Bio of Apostle Paul
    • Ephesians
    • Galatians
    • Philippians

The Joy Class would like to consider using an “hybrid model” as we begin the process of moving forward with some class members attending the Sunday School in person and some attending virtually. Several members have a need to attend virtually as some have health issues and are concerned about getting together. In addition, we have members living great distances and cannot attend in person.

The Vine

Please note new time

When : 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., every Sunday, on Zoom

About : Our goal is to grow spiritually by studying the scriptures in depth together.  We’re currently studying the Psalms and learning how we can use this rich collection of prayers (that Jesus and many before him used) in our prayer lives today. It’s fascinating!
