Sunday School

We are so glad you are thinking about attending a Sunday School/small group class at North Hills. The groups/classes are set up to provide a place for everyone of any age. Attending a Sunday School/Small Group class is the best way to get involved in the LIFE of a local church. Wonderful things happen during these meetings and the experience can touch the lives of everyone in the congregation – from the very young to the very old.

Sunday School/small groups are a place where people and churches can be transformed:

  • growing leaders for the church’s mission
  • increasing people’s sense of belonging and commitment to stewardship
  • providing a place for new people to make friends and learn to grow as disciples
  • deepening people’s understanding of God’s activity in all of life
  • it’s not just for kids!  It’s for everyone!

6 Reasons Sunday School Is Important

  1. Sunday School improves your Bible knowledge. When you know and understand God’s Word for yourself, you are more likely to obey the Lord. The Bible knowledge gained in Sunday School also helps you become more proficient in using God’s Word, the Bible.
  2. Sunday School assists your spiritual growth. Think of Sunday School teachers and class members who have modelled the Christian life. You learned from their examples how to live for Jesus. Most importantly, spiritual growth often occurs best in the context of small group Bible study. That’s Sunday School.
  3. Sunday School provides a “place to belong.” In a Sunday School class you are known, personally recognized and transparency is more likely to occur. You can share needs and concerns from your life. As you participate in class discussions, you become part of the group.
  4. Sunday School helps you build meaningful relationships. You meet people, learn their names, hear their stories, and meet their families. You share fellowship times with class members. You minister alongside others.
  5. Sunday School gives you opportunities to serve and minister. Contacts with sometimes “unchurched prospects” gives you the privilege of sharing your faith. You show the love of Jesus by ministering to class members who have needs.
  6. Sunday School has a place for the whole family. In one trip to church your entire family can participate in the important purposes of Bible study, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and evangelism. You gain the assurance of knowing every member of your family is involved in weekly, small-group Bible study, which is growing their Bible knowledge and helping them grow spiritually.
