For children ages 4 through 8, after the Sunday morning worship service from September through April.
“…telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.” –Psalm 78:4
This text reflects the mandate that we at Zion URC are striving to fulfill as we teach Sunday school from year to year. All the children meet together with their teachers and a song leader to sing and learn new songs to the praise and glory of God. After this time of singing, the students go with their teacher to the classroom where they learn stories and lessons from the Word of God.
The Bible stories are presented to the children in such a way that they will come to see the complete “story” of the Bible – God’s plan of redemption. It is our hope and prayer that the children will see the awesome wonder of God, and come to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, sent to earth by God the Father through His love, and that the Spirit will work in their hearts even at a young age to help them understand what sin is and to convict them of their own sin and seek forgiveness through the cross of Christ.
