Q:

What are the benefits of Sunday school?

A:

Sunday school offers children, youth and adults a chance to learn more about the Bible and to discuss faith-based topics in an age-appropriate setting. The typical Sunday school class is more about investigation and learning, whereas a church session is focused on worship and community building.

Church retention is often higher for Sunday school attendees than for those who go to church only. People learn about evangelism and discipleship in the Sunday school setting. Sunday school also allows families to build in back-to-back sessions of school and church on a Sunday morning and provides a safer venue than church for some people to invite friends.
