Sunday School is presently operating on demand only and is for young people up to the age of twenty. We will happily accommodate visits with a little advance notice.
What is taught in Sunday School:
The Scriptures: Everyone can practice the healing ideas taught in the Bible and in the weekly Bible Lesson.
The First Lessons – The Basics: Students of all ages are taught the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer and its spiritual interpretation by Mary Baker Eddy, and the Sermon on the Mount.
What are classes like?
Classes are adapted to each individual student, teacher, and group. Some classes include more emphasis on study, others are more discussion oriented. Some may address specific challenges that students are confronting, others may include videos, music, storytelling or games.
Can I ask any question I want in class?
Definitely, and about anything! One of the most important parts about Sunday School is to find answers together. That’s why you’ll hear your teachers asking thought-provoking questions – so that the class can search together for spiritual explanations that are practical and understandable.
What happens in Sunday School aside from classes?
First, the superintendent calls everyone together to start Sunday School. Then there’s singing and a chance to focus as a group on the theme of the week’s Bible Lesson. Everyone is invited to read together, pray together silently, and then say the Lord’s Prayer out loud.
Next, students are divided into classes—which may happen in various ways depending on the needs of the students. Class time is spent differently in every class and on every Sunday. Teachers come prepared, but are flexible and adjust to the needs of students each week. It’s a time for questions, answers, study, learning, practice, and healing.
When class time is over, everyone gathers together again for another hymn and the Scientific Statement of Being from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. That’s the end of Sunday School class, but many teachers and students are in touch with one another during the week.
