Title: Recipe for a Great Sunday School!


1
Recipe for a Great Sunday School!
  • Key Ingredients for Kids Small Group

2
What is Sunday School?
  • Sunday School is the foundational strategy of a
    local church for leading people to faith in the
    Lord Jesus Christ and building on-mission
    Christians through open Bible study groups that
    engage people in evangelism, discipleship,
    fellowship, ministry, and worship.

3
Key Ingredient 1
  • a Scoop of
  • EVANGELISM

4
  • Evangelism is defined as the active calling of
    people to respond to the message of grace and
    commit oneself to God in Christ Jesus.

5
How can we present the gospel to the kids in our
Sunday School Class?
  • Through the Bible stories
  • Sharing what the Lord is doing in our lives, and
    your own salvation story!
  • Encouraging the children to share what the Lord
    is doing in their lives
  • Telling others!

6
How can we help kids make evangelism a part of
their daily life?
  • Mark 1615, He said to them, Go into all the
    world and preach the good news to all creation.
  • Provide opportunities for kids to tell others and
    invite others to be a part of Sunday school!

7
Key ingredient 2- Stir in a heaping measure of
discipleship!
  • Disciples are followers of Jesus, so each week we
    are in the process of teaching our boys and girls
    HOW to follow Jesus in all they do!
  • In order to disciple children, you must first
    practice being a disciple, too. How are you
    discipled as you teach in Sunday School?

8
How are the children in your class discipled?
  • Using curriculum that is biblically sound and age
    appropriate
  • Understanding your children and how they learn
  • Helping children to understand the relevance of
    each Bible story to their lives
  • Learning Bible skills and memorizing scripture
  • Presenting the Bible story in fresh and creative
    ways
  • Modeling Christ in our lives as we build
    relationships with the kids in our class and
    their family!
  • John 831Jesus said, If you hold to my
    teaching, you are really my disciples.

9
Key ingredient 3 many spoons full of
fellowship!
  • Fellowship provides the kids and their families
    the opportunity to connect and build
    relationships with each other, and to God.
  • How can we intentionally build relationships in
    our small groups?
  • Divide your class into care groups and make an
    intentional effort to get to know the kids and
    families in your group.
  • Provide opportunities for the children to get to
    know each other.
  • Provide opportunities for families to get
    together with their kids for fellowship.
  • Be creative in using parents in the classroom,
    strengthening those relationships.
  • Communicate with the kids and their families
    weekly! Have a strategy to do this!

10
Galatians 514,Love your neighbor as yourself.
  • Through fellowship, we are helping children and
    families develop a love for each other and
    prayerfully this love will extend to all of our
    neighbors.
  • As we share Gods love with our children, we are
    modeling how they are to love one another.

11
Key Ingredient 4A generous cup of Ministry
  • 1 Peter 410- Each one should use whatever gift
    he has received to serve others, faithfully
    administering Gods grace in its various forms.
  • How do we do ministry in Childrens Sunday
    school?

12
Ministry cont.
  • How do we teach ministry in Childrens Sunday
    School?
  • Ministry is two parts
  • Our service to those the Lord has placed in our
    small group
  • Our small groups service to those outside of our
    small group serving others
  • Our children need to be a part of serving others
    through a God-sized task!

13
Key Ingredient 5A heaping helping of Worship!
  • Rick Warren defines worship as the expression of
    our love to God for who He is, what Hes said,
    and what He is doing. In his book, the Purpose
    Driven Life, Warren equates worship with making
    God smile. Share at least three ways we worship
    in Childrens Sunday School.

14
Worship, cont.
  • John 424, God is spirit, and those who worship
    Him must worship in spirit and truth.
  • Worship is a personal and corporate experience,
    but the focus is always the Lord.

15
Cooking up an exciting Sunday School!
  • Sunday School is a strategy a plan we must be
    prepared
  • All of the ingredients are important.
  • All of our plans, ingredients, recipes must
    include the presence and power of the Holy
    Spirit, for 1 Corinthians 24-5 teaches us that,
    My speech and my proclamation were not with
    persuasive words of wisdom, but with a
    demonstration of the Spirit and power, so that
    your faith might not be based on mens wisdom but
    on Gods power.

16
  • May the Lord bless you with His Spirit and power
    as you teach His children!
