Sunday School News - February 2023

Think you don’t need adult Sunday school?

 

You could be missing something huge. Over the past 25 years or so, we’ve noticed a disturbing trend. Adult Sunday school numbers has declined or even disappeared from many congregations. It’s a dangerous trajectory. We are  concerned when we read studies showing our children and teenagers do not know the Bible, but do the adults know it any better? Take a step back and ask yourself this question: What specifically is my church doing to help adult disciples know and understand the whole Bible? A comprehensive knowledge of Scripture is essential for mature, growing disciples. Attending adult Sunday school class doesn’t have to be daunting! Sunday school can help us understand and apply the whole of Scripture. So many people say, “I don’t read the Bible because I can’t understand it.” One of the exciting things about adult curriculum is that it helps us understand Scripture by illuminating the context behind the text. You may be surprised how many adults actually like attending Sunday morning classes. We welcome you to begin (or resume) coming to Sunday School. Every member can become life-long learners with a deep understanding of the Bible—important goals for every Christian.
