Working Together

“Let no Christian parents fall into the delusion that Sunday School is intended to ease them of their personal duties. The first and most natural condition of things is for Christian parents to train up their own children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Let’s…be honest!

Let’s be honest, many parents drop their children off at Sunday school on Sunday, just like they drop them off at school.

Many parents expect the same thing as when their children attends school. They want them to learn something, but they don’t want to be involved.

The Mistake

Parents must be involved with their Childs Christian education. What is a worldly education to a Christian child without an godly education? This is a very big mistake!

Reading and doing Bible study with your children is a very important aspect in raising godly children and teens.

Kids are exposed to secularism on a everyday basis, more than anything “Christian“. What this means, is that parents have to work just as hard in helping their kids learn about God, just as much as making them do their homework for school. And more!

It’s hard for the church to compete with the schools, when kids are at school eight or more hours in a day, and at least five days a week. Sunday rolls around once a week, class time hours vary between one to two hours. Even if they are involved in other programs at the church, you need to know “what” they are learning. We live in a different time now parents.

Ask your children what they learned in Sunday School, see what scriptures they went over, talk about what they learned, and how they can apply it to their lives. Have a discussion with them based off the lesson. Tell them how proud you are they they were paying attention in class. Ask your kids, what went on in class. This is just as important as if they are in regular school. The parent needs to know every aspect of their Childs education.

If you have younger kids that can’t tell you very much, ask the teachers! Your Childs Christian education, will shape their futures and your too!

When children realize that their parents want to know what they are learning in church, they are more likely going to pay more attention and try to take something home.


Unless your child is under the age of five, they should be able to understand the biblical aspects of the bible to some degree. Can you remember Bible stories, from when you were in Sunday school as a kid?

Babies and toddlers need babysitters, so you can enjoy church sometimes. However, don’t attempt to just put your child or teen in Sunday school, for them to be babysat. Sunday school is not a “drop-off” so you don’t have to deal with your child for a few hours over the weekend. Just like you attend the church service, to be fed by the Word of God, your child should attend Sunday school with that same expectation.

In this way, you grow your at home ministry, bringing up your child the way God desires, and you can surely say, “It does take a village sometimes, because I am doing my part too!

In this way, the church is BETTER: When Working Together!


 “Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.”

Proverbs 22:6
