CBCC Sunday School Starting Up


Center 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.


Why attend 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.


Come join your neighbors and meet new friends at Center Barnstead Christian Church Sunday, September 15.  At Center Barnstead Christian Church our desire is to know what the Bible teaches and to apply those teachings to our daily lives.  We are located right next to the Town Hall in beautiful Barnstead, New Hampshire. For more information please contact the church at 269-8831.
