Taking Kids To Sunday School
May 31, 2023

Did you know that 80% of the missionaries and Pastors serving the Lord came to faith when they were under the age of 14. You can do a quick study the next time you are in church and ask your friends when they came to faith.

At CEF we have helped thousands of Sunday school teachers and missionaries around the globe make a stronger impact in children by attending Sunday school through our various means of training.

It might be that your church could use one of our various topics of training:

  • How to share Gospel
  • Make Bible stories come alive
  • Memory verses that stick
  • Worship for kids
  • Interactive safe and fun activities
  • Classroom management
  • And much more.

Families that take their children to Sunday school can experience many benefits and here are just a few key reasons why parents should consider this practice:

Spiritual Foundations: Sunday school provides children with a solid spiritual foundation. It introduces them to the teachings of the Bible, the life of Jesus Christ, and the core values of faith. This early exposure helps children develop a moral compass and instills values such as love, kindness, forgiveness, and compassion.

Community and Fellowship: Church communities foster a sense of belonging and provide a supportive network for families for both young and old alike. By attending Sunday school, children have the opportunity to make friends with peers who share similar beliefs and values.

Building relationships within a church community can provide a strong support system for children and their families that can last a lifetime.

Bible Knowledge: Sunday school provides a structured environment for children to learn about the Bible. They engage in age-appropriate lessons, stories, and activities that help them understand biblical principles and stories. This biblical knowledge equips children with a solid understanding of their faith, enabling them to navigate life’s challenges with wisdom and discernment.

Moral Development: In the Bible believing churches you will find them teaching important moral values that are beneficial for a child’s development. Through Sunday school, children learn about concepts like honesty, integrity, respect, and responsibility. These values serve as a guide for making ethical decisions and forming a strong moral character, which can positively influence their behavior and choices throughout their lives.

Worship and Prayer: Attending Sunday school exposes children to the act of worship and prayer. They learn how to connect with God, express gratitude, seek guidance, and offer praise. Regular participation in worship services and prayer cultivates a deepening relationship with God and fosters a sense of spirituality in children.

Biblical Principles in Daily Life: Sunday school lessons often emphasize the application of biblical principles in daily life. Children are encouraged to integrate their faith into various aspects of their lives, such as school, relationships, and decision-making. This helps them understand the relevance of their faith beyond the walls of the church and equips them with a framework for living a purposeful and meaningful life.


Sense of Purpose and Hope: Christianity provides children with a sense of purpose and hope. Sunday school teaches them about God’s love, His plan for their lives, and the hope found in the message of salvation. This knowledge can bring comfort, assurance, and resilience in times of difficulty and uncertainty, providing children with a solid foundation for their emotional and spiritual well-being.

While Sunday school is not the only means of instilling these values and beliefs in children, it offers a structured and supportive environment that complements you parental teachings. It provides a nurturing space where children can grow in their faith, develop character, build relationships, and deepen their understanding of their Christian.
