Sunday School

Ministry Leader: Dave During (Olive)

Happy New Year

Middle Florida Baptist Association

The foundational base for your Sunday school is found in God’s Word. Jesus charged us with reaching and teaching children and families—to help them become fully devoted followers of Jesus. His words in Matthew 28:19-20 give us a foundational “why” for Sunday school:

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Build a solid foundation for your Sunday school ministry.

Determine your mission
A mission statement helps solidify your “why.” If you don’t have a mission statement, then gather your key teachers and create one. Here are tips for creating your mission statement.

•Keep it biblical. Keep it reflective of Matthew 28:19-20.

•Keep it unified. Align it with your church’s overall mission statement, if possible.

•Keep it short. If it’s simple, it’ll be memorable. Long mission statements might look good on paper, but most people won’t remember them. For example, ours is “Impacting Our World With the Love and Message of Jesus Christ…Everyone…Every day…Everywhere.”

•Keep it fun. Each time your team gets together, have them repeat the mission statement. Make it fun by saying it as a cheer or shouting it together. Reminding your teachers of your mission helps them stay focused and motivated in a unified direction.

•Keep it visible. Put it on display in your Sunday school rooms and hallways, in print on take-home pieces, and so on.
