Christian Education 

General Objective of the CE Committee: To equip each person, child and adult, in the congregation with sufficient knowledge of the Bible, the doctrine, and purpose of the church; to enable each person to grow in the Christian faith, to function as an active, knowledgeable member and to share his faith competently with others.

Under the guidance of the Session, the CE committee directs and supports many services at New Sterling. The Sunday School, Nursery, Children's Church, and VBS programs are our main focus. Additionally, the CE committee provides Bible study curriculum guidance to small groups and individuals and tries to maintain a small library and a list of recommended study material. 


child careNursery I  (0-2 years)

A crib and toddler nursery is provided during all worship services.  Nursery care is also provided for children age two and under during the Sunday school hour. 'Children's Church' is provided for children age three to six during Sunday morning worship.


membershipNursery II - Elementary
(3 years - 6th grade)

The current curriculum is published by Great Commission Publications. Their Show Me Jesus curriculum is designed to help the student grow in Biblical knowledge and learn how to live out their faith in God's world.


membershipJunior High (grades 7-9)

Again we use curriculum published by Great Commission Publications. The Show Me Jesus - Youth curriculum builds on the Bible's unifying theme of God's covenant. Students trace the development of the covenant from Genesis to Revelation and discover God's unfolding plan, fulfilled by Jesus, to save his people.


membershipSenior High (grades 10-12)

For the senior high students we use a mix of studies from Great Commission Publications and others to reinforce earlier lessons and build the student's character.

Winter 2017/2018

Friendship Class - Tony Harper will lead a Bible study concentrating on a specific book of the Bible. Join us as we explore Ephesians.

Chapel Class and Men's Class - David Sides and Clay Price will be teaching from the Adult Quarterly, written by Dr. Mark Ross.

Pastor Tim's Class - Pastor Tim leads us through a current or popular writing and uses it to highlight God's Word and stress pursuit of biblical living. This quarter we will study ROMANS A 12 WEEK STUDY. The book of Romans was Paul's majestic letter in which the apostle explains crucial doctrines. Plumbing the theological depths, this guide explains the biblical text with clarity and passion--helping us to follow along as Paul recounts the history of salvation and illuminates the glories of the death and resurrection of Christ.
