Sunday School

"Psalms 92 verses 13-14"

"Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. “They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing."

Sunday School is a place where one encounters God. In Sunday School one learns to live a better life—that is God’s way, which is the bible way. Sunday School provides answers to the tough questions in life; discovery of divine purpose for living; and, the ability to discover truth are established.

An effective Sunday School class is geared not only for information, but also for life changes. The small group setting of our Sunday School provides accountability, and strives to help our members think like Christ.

The Bible instructs us to “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). The systematic study of the Bible prepares our children to make biblical choices every day at home, at school, and at play. Our lessons are geared to lead every child to a personal relationship with Christ at an early age.

Sunday School is more relevant for youth today than ever before. Young people are confronted with diverse religions, decadent lifestyles, and unbounded consumerism. In this setting, suicide has become one of the leading causes of death among teenagers; however, the unchanging truth of the Bible brings hope, strengthens their relationships with Christ, and request power from the Holy Spirit.

Our Sunday School has the potential to change lives, but this change is not automatic. Committed teachers are required, who are not only well trained, but have a passion for evangelism and discipleship, and depend on the power of Holy Spirit for divine guidance. Finally, because Sunday School incorporates teaching, discipleship, ministry, and fellowship, it contributes to the spiritual health of the Church.

May God bless us all as we go forth toward another year in this labor of love. The Sunday School ministry will continue to strive for excellence as we mold the minds of our youth and adults alike, and teach the doctrine of Christ. Faithful in the Lord’s Service.
