TOPIC SUNDAY SCHOOL

TITLE WHY DO WE NEED A SUNDAY SCHOOL?

Five days of the week Sandra had to wear the school uniform. None of the students were proud of their colors or the design of the outfits. Everyone seemed to look alike and the whole neighborhood knew where they studied. During Elementary school Sandy did not mind what she wore. But when she became a teenager she wanted to choose her wardrobe. Sunday mornings were great, because Mom allowed her to choose her outfits, provided they were modest and suitable for Church. While adults attended the main church program, the children had Sunday School. All the kids looked so pretty and colorful in their Sunday outfits. Sunday school was a time for children to learn from the Bible, sing choruses, do some craft work and enjoy some refreshments.

Children from nursery up to grade 8 were in the Sunday school. Choruses and simple hymns were sung, before they went to different classes. Teachers and helpers taught from God’s Word followed by some related art and craft activity. Even though it was called Sunday school it was very different from the regular school. The teachers were more friendly and cared a lot. The lessons were so interesting and meaningful, stuff that will make you a better person. There were less rules and yet the kids seemed well behaved. Before they were dispersed everyone got snacks. Sometimes they got to play outside if the weather was good.

Sunday Schools are tailored to meet the spiritual needs of the young people in the congregation. We need to encourage all children in all churches to attend and benefit from the modified curriculum prepared for each age group. Many children have given their hearts to Jesus Christ because dedicated teachers have explained to them the love of God in simple words. Memory verses will remain in your heart for life. The Lord Jesus when He was on earth blessed the little children and assured the disciples that they we precious in His sight.

Ecclesiastes 12:1 says, “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth-----“
All parents need to encourage every child in the congregation to be part of the Sunday school and reap its life long benefits.

Nicely organized essay/devotional and just the right length. A personal experience would move it up a notch for reader involvement. Thanks for the positive viewpoint and for sharing your thoughts.

Concise writing supporting your stance that Sunday School is needed. Could, possibly, leave out the first paragraph? - I lost track of the character, Sandra.

Well-written. I would have liked to read more about Sandra; the first paragraph was very compelling.

Good concepts here, short and to the point. Some of your senteces could have been linked together to make it seem less "choppy" but overall this was a great piece! Keep sharing your writing.
