The East Mt. Zion Sunday Church School Ministry 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. each Sunday
Definition: The most active agency in the teaching ministry of the Christian church is the Sunday Church School. As the name suggests, it is a church sponsored school that meets for study and worship on Sunday (Matthew 4:10).
The Aim Of The Sunday Church School:
- The primary aim of the Sunday Church School is to offer religious instruction to all ages from infancy through adulthood. This is done through evangelism and teaching. It is safe to say then, that the Sunday Church School serves as both the Evangelistic and teaching arms of the church. Evangelism is the arm that extends beyond the local church into the community to reach individuals and families; while teaching is the arm that embraces the children and adults of the local congregation keeping them from straying away by instructing them in God's Word(II Tim. 2:15).
The Mission of the Sunday Church School:
- The mission of the Sunday Church School is to carryout its aims. Its mission then is twofold: 1) To reach the lost. This is done through evangelism which can be achieved by: (a) witnessing to the community, (b) witnessing to the local congregation, and (c) witnessing to those who sit in our Sunday Church School classes each Sunday (Matthew 28:19-20).
