Sunday School High Attendance Day - February 21, 2016
Goal: 250! Sunday School Enrollment: 241 Average Sunday School Attendance: 175
A recent article by Pastor Rick Warren titled, 5 Big Goals for Each New Year of Ministry, could also be applied to Sunday School. I believe that Sunday School is a vital part of our worship experience, so allow me to share these goals with you.
Goal 1: Attendance - Gathering together is a great means of encouragement, correction/reflection, and growth. Make regular contact with members and absentees. Invite and enroll new members.
Goal 2: Connections - "An ember pulled from the fire, goes out." Classes should do everything they can to strengthen connections through fellowship, projects and meals.
Goal 3: Maturity - We should help our members grow in spiritual maturity. Think: How can you grow this year in your relationship with God and in the fruit of the Spirit to live a more obedient Christ-like life?
Goal 4: Ministry and Leaders - Every class can encourage members to have a place of service in the church and/or the community. "One can't do everything, but all can do one thing."
Goal 5: Great Commission - Classes can pursue projects in the community, nation, and world. Pray. Identify needs. Serve. Give.
Go. Jesus sent His disciples in pairs. Let's Serve Together!
