Adult Sunday School

For Reaching, Teaching, Winning, and Caring

Our Approach to Sunday School

Sunday School is the REACHING arm of the church. “Reaching” is defined as making contact with a person and motivating him or her to give an honest hearing to the gospel. Since evangelism is giving out the gospel, reaching is basically “pre-evangelism”, for it gets people to listen to the gospel.

Sunday School is the TEACHING arm of the church. “Teaching” means guiding the learning activities that meet human needs. The first step of teaching is expressed in the verse by the words “that they may hear.” The ultimate step of teaching is “that they may learn.”

Sunday School is the WINNING arm of the church. Sunday School is also the arm of the Church that wins people to Christ. “Winning” is defined as communicating the gospel in an understandable manner and motivating a person to respond to Christ. The Old Testament expression “fear the Lord” means to bring a person to reverential trust of God. It was a concept of salvation. Today we might describe a person who “fears the LORD” as a person who receives Christ or trusts the Lord for salvation.

Sunday School is the CARING arm of the church. Sunday School is the pillar of the Church that gives spiritual care to all members. One of the objectives of every Sunday School is to spiritually care for all so that all will “carefully observe all the words of this law.” Some people call this nurturing; others call it maturing.

We encourage all people to become part of this reaching, teaching, winning and caring group as we study the Word of God together.
