Join Us for Sunday School

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.

Description We take a deep dive into the stories taught during Children’s Sunday School to better understand God’s message and how we can transform ourselves and our parenting to reflect God’s message through these stories. We are open to all family sizes, ages, and compositions. We seek to learn from Scripture and each other on how to personally grow and how to raise disciples of our children, youth, and young adults.

  • 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

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

Teacher and Contact Person: Dahlia Orleans-Pobee

Description: 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!
