So you've been asked to teach Sunday School! Teaching Sunday School or Children's Church is a big responsibility, but it is also a tremendous blessing. There are many sources for lesson material and craft ideas, but there is more to meditate on before you begin. If you are considering teaching Sunday School, here are five tips to think about that might lead to a more successful outcome.
A story is a like a picture brought to life in one’s imagination. It has the potential to inspire, to create interest, enlighten, and correct wrong conduct. A Bible story has the power to change the heart and the ability to clarify abstract truths. Jesus used stories, called parables, to teach spiritual truths to adults. All the more as we teach these same truths to children, we should harness the power of stories to bring about spiritual understanding.
What is the Bible?
For a child whose Bible experience consists of a collection of disjointed stories, trying to piece those stories together is a bit like trying to build a puzzle without the picture.
If children are not shown the 'big picture' of the Bible, they will struggle to understand how the stories interconnect.
Basic beliefs can be taught as part of a Bible story by selecting a simple truth and weaving it into the story. This can be done almost in passing, not that the Bible truth is less important, but because it forms a natural part of the story.
The Bible is a big book, and we are blessed to have such a collection of inspired writing—the Word of God—literally at our fingertips.
Yet, due to its sheer volume, fine print and writing style, children usually find it difficult to pick up and read a standard version of the Bible.
When teaching children the Bible, we sometimes use words that are unfamiliar to them. Words that are used mainly in a Bible, or in a Christian context, may not be understood by younger children or by those who do not come from a Christian background.
This week at my church I won't be sharing a traditional Mother's Day sermon but instead will be sharing a message about the God who comforts as a mother who comforts her child. Often times we place upon God attributes that show severity and rigidness. However I would like to show you the God who is willing to comfort us as a mother comforts her child. So let me start by sharing with you a verse out of the book of Isaiah chapter 66 and verse 13.
Teaching children the Word of God is the only way of preparing them to make the most important decision of their lives-where they will spend eternity. A wise man, through observation and the Holy Spirit's inspiration, came to understand this important truth: "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it" Proverbs 22:6.
