Do most churches still have Sunday School? Barna research indicates that 95% of evangelical churches do have some form of Sunday School. Over 300,000 churches in America still have Sunday School. That translates into over 66 million people involved in Sunday School or a Small Group Bible Study. We also know from statistics that 8 out of 10 people who get involved in a Sunday School class or Small Group Bible Study are still involved in church after 5 years. The opposite is true of those who do not get involved, 8 out of 10 are no longer actively involved in church after 5 years. Sunday School is where many children learn about Jesus and the love of God. It is also the place where adults can grow in their relationship with Jesus and get involved in ministering to others. Don’t give up on Sunday School, it is still one of the best strategies for the church to reach, teach, and minister to people. What are your thoughts about Sunday School?
