Branching out

Expanding Sunday School

From the June 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I was sitting in a Sunday service in my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, when one of the Readers read an announcement about Sunday School. He said, “We welcome young people to our Sunday School.” 

I thought, “Do we? Do I?” We hadn’t had any regular students in our Sunday School for a few years. In that moment, I decided to consciously welcome any of God’s children into our Sunday School. I reached out with a mental hug and felt God’s love embracing me and all potential students. I knew from my own experience attending as a student and as a teacher, that it was a valuable experience. 

I realized my mistake in thinking about Sunday School as static—having no possibilities for growth.
