School Starting Up
Barnstead Christian Church begins a new Fall Sunday School Season!
Beginning September 15th at 9:00 am, a new series of classes will
commence for all ages.
Sunday School? Here are some very good reasons: Sunday School is a
place to study the Bible, have a better understanding of God’s Word, and
apply His truth to your life. Sunday School is where you can partner
with others to share Christ with people who don’t know Him. Sunday
School is the place where you start to feel like a part of the family of
God. Sunday School is a place where you can develop and utilize your
leadership skills. It’s not just for children! No one says going back to
college is childish. Going to Sunday School is like continuing your
education with God. But it’s not about degrees or a pay raise. It’s
about knowing God and following after Him. And finally, but not least,
Sunday School provides an excellent support group in times of personal
crisis and need.
