The Sunday School spirit was ignited by Christ and passed by Him to the disciples. The Sunday School is a modern title for an ancient and apostolic service to the Church. It is a school for disciples. It is a school with a textbook – the Bible.

From Our State Sunday School Coordinator
“Sunday School is one of the vital arms of the Church operating in all our local congregations. Our ministry is dedicated to teaching to win souls by helping people see their sinful nature and leading them to accept Christ’s forgiveness. We also teach to develop souls by leading people into a fuller and richer spiritual life.

The above paragraphs are from The Church of God website. They are an explanation of what Sunday School is to the Church. They are very clear about what this auxiliary and actions are to the Church. This Sunday School spirit that was ignited was passed to the disciples, then to the Church. It is still ignited today. We need to fan the fire and throw on some coal. Let it burn, let it spread, and get everybody involved in this Sunday School spirit.
Sunday School is an outreach program to our Church communities. I see the need for some training in this area. We need to train our people to be prepared to approach people, what to say, how to say it, and when to say it. This has been on my heart and mind for some time. The question is, “How to get started?” Prayer! Pray for God to lead you. Then have some classes on how to prepare. Preparation is a must. There are many things that would have to be covered in these classes. Meeting the public is not so easy. The main thing is attitude. We must have the right attitude. We need to be positive, excited, upbeat, and eager to share good news. You want the joy of the Lord to overflow, be seen and felt.
If you think this would be good for your church, I would be willing to come help all I can. Together we can make ourselves willing and available. Maybe an “Outreach Alabama” for our Sunday Schools. Please feel free to share your thoughts with me on this.
“And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?” (Luke 2:49). Church, we need to be about our Father’s business. Our ministry is dedicated to teaching to win souls! Please, let’s be encouraged to start visitation for Sunday School. Let’s fill our classes and pews. Jesus is coming soon. You ready? Praise the Lord for Sunday School! Love y’all!
