of Sunday School
Through learning stories of the bible we teach the
children that God loves, teaches and supports them.
- children aged 4 to Grade 7 with the different
activities varying for all ages.
The theme this year is "Learning from God’s
Creatures”. We will be talking about different animals from
A-Z and how we can learn about God through the creatures.
Readings, coloring sheets, puzzles, arts and crafts
are usually all involved.
The structure of lessons is: Lord's Prayer, offering,
birthdays if there are any, then our lesson which involves
reading a bible quote and a bible story with discussion and
then we do a craft. If the craft is too hard for some
children, there are coloring sheets for them to do.
We do 2 special activities each year. Our
Sunday School leads the church service on one of the Sundays
(usually White Gift Sunday) at Christmas time. Usually
this program involves Christmas singing as well as some type
of Christmas play.
Our other special activity is Children's Day which ends our
year. We once again lead the church service. This
involves more singing and some type of play based on the
Sunday School theme that year. During Children's Day
the children also get their certificates and any students
that are in their final year of Sunday School are presented
with a bible from the Sunday School.
