Sunday School Vision Statement

Studying and Learning the Bible

· Utilizing intriguing study that develops hunger for the Word;
· Engaging with skillful teachers who not only teach the Bible but develop other members as teachers of the Word;
· Relating the Bible to one’s life and experiences; and
· Sharing actively as Sunday School members to expand our experience and challenge our thinking.

In-Reach and Support for Each Other

· A feeling of continual support from fellow Sunday School members:
· Regular celebrations of how consistent in-reach helped our members;
· A sense of shared ownership of the class by all members.
· Intentional follow up and dedication to noticing which members need prayer and care;
· Regular communication through a variety of means to all members and potential members;
· Strategic connections between Sunday Schools and other events or programs; and
· An updated class directory with preferred ways of contact.

Fellowship

· Regular in-home fellowships intended to build relationships;
· “Open time” during each class for communication;
· Frequent events such as parties, lunch outings, prayer breakfasts, and special dinners; and
· The use of media and technology for connecting and communication throughout the week.

Individual and Communal Prayer

· An expansion of the teaching and practice of prayer;
· The encouragement for members to develop personal, individual prayer lives;
· A regular means of updating prayer requests;
· Regular communication to all class members of prayer needs; and
· An increased comfort with individual and corporate prayer.
