God's work in children

From the January 2001 issue of The Christian Science Journal


As we noted earlier in this series, Robert Raikes is given the main credit for starting the Sunday School movement in 1780, although some Sunday Schools existed earlier in England. Efforts to help children in North America began between 1735 and 1737, dur ing a missionary trip across the Atlantic by the founder of the Methodist Church, John Wesley.
