Sunday School is a great ministry of the church to reach others and to teach others. Through the Sunday School, the church is organized into smaller groups, typically by age, that can facilitate its work of reaching and teaching. Our goal is obedience to the Great Commission given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Sunday School must be more than a baby-sitting hour for children or a weekly meeting without purpose. It is the vehicle through which the whole church becomes a working church. Through Sunday School, each part of the church, whether preschool, children, youth, or adults, is to be perfected that the saints might do the work of the ministry and the body of Christ be edified.
Each Sunday School teacher/leader should prayerfully adopt the following biblical principles as goals for each class:
To Glorify Christ by Being Scriptural (Psalm 119:105)
To Teach the Word of God (II Timothy 3:14-17)
To Win the Lost and Baptize the Saved (Matthew 28:18-20)
To Promote Faithfulness in the Christian Life (I Corinthians 4:2)
To Provide Opportunities for Serving the Lord (Romans 12:1-2)
To Encourage Worship (Psalm 34:3)
To Build Closeness and Fellowship within the Church (John 13:35)
To Strengthen Families (Colossians 3:18-21)
To Understand and Participate in Biblical Missions and World Evangelism (Acts 1:8)
To Develop a Biblical Worldview (Philippians 2:5)
