Here’s what some of our children have to say about Sunday School…

  • I have fun. I get to see my friends.
  • I get to learn about Jesus and God.
  • I like when we sing songs about Jesus.
  • I like it when we make posters of Jesus.
  • Sunday School is important to me because we learn about God and praise him. We also have a better relationship with him when we go to Sunday School.
  • In Sunday School we learn about God’s love, and what you need to do to be faithful to God.
  • My favorite thing about Sunday School is the music class.
