Greetings in the name of Lord Jesus!
With a grateful heart, we thank Lord Jesus Christ for blessing our church with Sunday School Ministry. We are a family of more than 350 children and 50 teachers & 5 volunteers.
By God’s grace we organised online classes during the pandemic. The Sunday School commenced on 5 June 2022 in the first floor of our New Prayer Hall.
The Sunday school session begins at 9.30am with an opening prayer, followed by Praise & worship session.
“Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up”.
Deuteronomy 11 : 19
Every week we sow the seeds of a Good habit with a bible verse. Example
- To wake up early in the morning like Joshua. Joshua rose early in the morning. Joshua 3:1
- “Rise up, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I will give it to you.” – Genesis 13:17
- To honour your father & mother. Exodus 20:12
- Top save money : The hand of the diligent maketh rich. Proverbs 10:4-5
- To avoid unnecessary expenses :’The wise save for the future; the foolish spend everything they get. ‘ Proverbs look 21:20 and many more.
The Sunday school family is motivated to pray for others (Special Prayer request). One student comes forward to pray for a prayer point each week.
We offer the word of God through Mrs. Anita Godwin & other speakers.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you” (Psalm 32:8)
Last academic year, we dealt with “The Covenant of God”. Holding on to this theme, we dealt on
- What is a covenant?
- Covenant of salt
- Covenant of Abraham
- Covenant of Adam
- Covenant of David,
- New Covenant
- Edenic covenant etc and much more.
We inspire children with a memento for those who actively participate in Bible quiz activities. In order to encourage the children , they are divided into two teams to motivate the children as Shining Super Stars as boys team Glittering Girls as girls team. They are awarded with points and the team with the highest points gets the Rolling Trophy for the week.
We collect offering and bless the birthday children and close the session with a prayer. After the general assembly, children join the individual classes for a small devotion.
“Pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5 : 17.
Every week after the Sunday school, All the teachers join together for preparatory prayer meeting where a small devotion is given followed by few prayer points, sharing the witness, and planning for the upcoming events is made.
