Is your Sunday School successful? Well, that depends on where you are going. Perhaps this exchange from Alice In Wonderland says it best:
Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Do you know where your Sunday School is trying to get to? If you are not sure, or could use some fresh ideas, here are 12 Sunday School rules for success. These guidelines will help point you in the right direction, provide strategies to help get you there, and give plenty of encouragement along the way.
1. God’s Word Is Your Foundation
“If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock.” — Jesus
The Word of God is your most powerful Sunday School resource. It saves, transforms and inspires. With it, you have everything and without it, you have nothing. To bring Scripture to life with your kids, there are 3 essentials: listening, responding and sharing.
- Listen: To understand the Bible, first hear what it has to say.
- Respond: As God’s Word speaks, respond in prayer.
- Share: Give others what God has given you – it’s how you make disciples.
