ABOUT SUNDAY SCHOOL
The Bible declares in Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
The purpose of the Sunday school for the children in our church is to give them a good taste and flavor of the Word of God (the Message) and to keep their mind out of the influence of the world especially in the age we are living in full of juvenile delinquency, moral decay, wrong marriages, wrong career path etc… We have Sunday school every Sunday morning for the children age 5 to 16 for about forty five minutes (from 8:00 am to 10:00 am). Currently, we have two classes: juniors (from ages 4 to 9) and seniors (from ages 10 to 16).
Each class is taught by a young sister and brother. The curriculum is well adapted into each class with emphasis on Bible stories and the Message of the hour. Many activities are also included in each program such as singing, games, recitals and projects. Parents are allowed to assist and observe their respective children’s learning and participation in various activities. This is very helpful to make sure that parents are aware and know what their children are learning in order to further assist them at home with their Sunday school assignments. To make the Sunday school more challenging, we do periodic testing and contests and give special prizes to the winners.
In addition, the pastor encourages strong participation and interest of the parents to their children learning. Better and stronger results can only be achieved with full cooperation between the church and the parents.
That’s why we have the right not to accept children under age to attend Sunday school without parents and/or guardian. We strongly believe what brother Branham said about it. A church is not a day-care where parents can just drop the kids and go to work or stay home.
Everything is our responsibility and we have to face our responsibilities. Therefore, as the church, parents, ministers to lead the future generation and help them avoid most common mistakes that had been done in the past. We believe that we are doing the best for the benefit of our children. We also believe that by God’s grace, we will present a new generation of youth who would stand and challenge the sin of this evil age.
Our Sunday school topics are tailored to catch the little children and teenagers’ attention with their full participation while learning. Our Sunday school activities include but not limited to:
- Recitals of Bible verses and Books of the Bible;
- References (memorization) to Brother Branham’s quotes about certain subjects;
- Bible stories both from the Bible and the Message of the Hour;
- Individual and group special songs;
- Special youth meetings with just boys, girls and/or both groups;
- Questions and answers on covered subjects followed by periodic contests;
- Learn how to effectively pray and how to speak in public etc…
