Basic Bible Class
This class aims to help unbelievers understand the Christian faith, including the gospel. It also lays the foundation for new Christians by helping them understand fundamental truths of the Christian faith.
Children Sunday School
“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven’” (Matt 19:14). “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Pro 22:6). God loves children. The Children Sunday School aims to teach the gospel that children may receive God’s salvation, and to train them that they may understand God’s Word and will walk in God holy ways, so that “they will not depart from it.”
The present Children Sunday School comprises a pre-school class, a lower primary school class and a class comprising those who are in the upper primary and lower secondary schools.
Adult Sunday School
“So Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, both men and women and all who could understand what they heard” (Neh 8:2).
“And Ezra the scribe stood on a wooden platform that they had made for the purpose … Also Jeshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, the Levites, helped the people to understand the Law, while the people remained in their places. They read from the book, from the Law of God, clearly, and they gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading” (Neh 8:4, 7-8).
“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, (Eph 4:11-13).
God has given to some people the gift and responsibility to teach God’s Word so that “both men and women and all who could understand” can understand His Word and grow in faith and knowledge to become more like our Lord Jesus Christ.
The present Adult Sunday School is divided into three groups: a group comprising the elderly people, a Chinese speaking group and an English speaking group. Every year, we will study an Old Testament book and a New Testament book. During several weeks in a year, we also have special studies, e.g. selected theological topics, other faiths, contemporary issues, etc. The Adult Sunday School, besides helping believers to understand God’s Word and truths, strives to teach Christians the skills of interpreting the Bible and to equip believers that they may engage the world in a meaningful way, that they may be the light and salt of the earth. We learn not only through interaction between teachers and students, but also as students share how they appropriate God’s Word in their lives. It is a also a time when we fellowship with one another.
