Sunday School

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6)

Our Sunday school is based on the above theme. We provide an environment in which children are taught Bible, songs, crafts and Christian discipline at an age-appropriate level, and are encouraged to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ with all these activities. Children are a blessing from the Lord. With these blessings also come responsibilities. As stewards of God’s children, each parent is responsible for helping children grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. In our Sunday school, we try to supplement parental responsibilities, in training children to have strong personal relationship with God.

Our Sunday school is conducted on every Sunday except first Sundays, after the first part of Service. Children and teachers go to Church basement at the singing of the second song, and have a circle time of worship together. CSI Madhya Kerala Diocesan Sunday School Worship Book is used at this circle time of worship. After the circle time, children go to their respective classes.

The classes are based on the following structure:

Pre K and KG Class Ages 2, 3, 4 & 5
Primary Class Grades 1 & 2
Junior Class Grades 3 & 4
Intermediate Class Grades 5 & 6
Pre- Teen Class Grades 7 & 8
Youth Class High School students & above

Our Sunday school uses the curriculum from The Story. The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible that reads like a novel. There are no verse references, and Scripture segments are seamlessly woven together with transition text into a single grand narrative. For those intimidated or overwhelmed by the unabridged Bible, The Story helps children and adults understand God’s Word more fully and engage with it more easily (thestory.com)

There are no regular classes during the summer holidays in July and August. In July, children get trained to perform an item at the Ecumenical St. Thomas Day Celebration by Kerala Christian Ecumenical Fellowship of Toronto. In August, children enjoy the Vacation Bible School (VBS), usually conducted from Friday to Sunday, towards the end of August. This Sunday in August is observed as VBS Sunday, with VBS children and volunteers taking active part in Service.

We observe November 1st Sunday as Children’ Sunday, following the CSI MKD almanac. On this Sunday, children take active part in Service. Sunday school children are encouraged to take part in other Church activities like Harvest Festival, Carol Service and House to House Carol Singing.

Our Sunday school conducts regular Bible quizzes to help children learn the Word of God, with an annual examination conducted at the end of November. Sunday school anniversary and talent show are conducted on family Sunday in December, usually the last Sunday for the year.

May the good Lord guide and bless all our children and teachers.

"We will not hide them from their children, we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power and the wonders He has done." (Psalm 78:4)
