Comments for Sunday School Leaders A home for people passionate about the Sunday School movement Thu, 11 May 2017 04:29:25 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on Celebrate When You Send out Missionaries to Serve by Kathleen Lutz Thu, 11 May 2017 04:29:25 +0000 Thank you for this article addressing the recognition and involvement of missionaries in the church.
I am a World Mission Prayer League missionary in Kenya for 7 yrs. and notice a decreasing enthusiasm in the local congregations regarding missions. When I was a youth churches held special events, inviting missionaries to speak, etc. Not so much anymore. Yet, God’s mission continues!

THANK YOU for publishing this. Every teacher should work this way, focusing on the Word, expecting God to speak. May God bless his tribes of teachers!

Comment on 100 Little Things Better Than One Big Thing by David Frasure Tue, 02 Aug 2016 12:56:12 +0000 Here are six thoughts:

Always have someone at the welcome desk or main entrance to escort people to their room
Have a Pastor’s or key leader’s class that introduces the church (New Member’s Class) but also ends with connecting people with the class they would attend
Every adult and youth class has an apprentice teacher who subs and has a part in the lesson at least once a month
Every adult and youth class has someone responsible for outreach/evangelism/missions involvement and allows them time every week in class to share, challenge and enlist
Every adult and youth class has someone responsible for ministry to enrollees and prospects and they are allowed time each week in class to share, lead prayer, challenge and enlist
Have an annual Sunday School Workers Retreat for inspiration, vision and instruction

Comment on A Hybrid Approach by Karen Dockrey Sat, 15 Aug 2015 16:41:47 +0000 And the groups unite under the focus of Bible Study 🙂

What loves people into studying, and living, the Word of God?

That’s what we do.

Groups–of whatever name–are a beautiful and effective way to love people and to love our Lord. Groups connect people to each other and to God.

Paul said it like this in 1 Corinthians 9:19-23:

Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.

Reaching out is critical to this process. Sunday School has time-honed excellencies that do this well. Small groups have time-honed excellencies that do this well. So encourage your groups to watch– and learn–from each another.
