What is Sunday School?

A Functional Definition of Sunday School
Sunday School is an essential disciple-making strategy of the Church. As such, Sunday School has proven its effectiveness by teaching biblical principles and godly living to people at every age and stage of life.

In order for Sunday School to remain effective in the 21st century, the Church must both reaffirm and retain the essential elements of this disciple-making strategy while also developing flexibility to address the diverse discipling challenges of our fast-paced, pluralistic culture.

Any Christian Education initiative in the local church that includes all of the following features/characteristics will be considered functionally comparable to Sunday School:

  • The primary purpose is obedient response to the Great Commission: Making disciples who will fulfill the threefold mission of the church —evangelism, worship, and discipleship.
  • The primary strategy is the intentional, systematic, development of leaders who can carry on the work of the ministry in the local church.
  • The primary curriculum is the Bible supported by appropriate teaching resources.
  • The primary process is regular (preferably weekly), systematic teaching of Bible content and doctrine.
  • The primary dynamic is the building of relationships that involve mutual commitment and accountability.
  • The primary structure includes a full range of groups, developed with sensitivity to culture, needs, interests, and/or life stages.
  • The primary oversight is the responsibility of the pastoral staff and church lay leaders in the local church.

Our New Acolyte - Praise God for the Children!

Mark 10:13-16 (NIV)

The Little Children and Jesus

13 People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.
