Adult Sunday School exists for the purpose of teaching the Word of God in such a way that we make and train disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ to obey all that he has commanded by equipping them with an in-depth knowledge of His Word, a thorough understanding of its demands, and practical instruction in applying His Word to daily life. In other words, the purpose of Christian education is to make disciples of Christ – people who love, follow, and obey the Master (John 14:15; James 1:22-25). What a great incentive to find the rich treasures of growing in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior!
These small groups are also a place of connection and ministry among the people of God. The connection results in assimilation and genuine fellowship. Mutual ministry aids in carrying out the “one another” pleas of the Scripture.
Therefore, Adult Sunday School aligns with Grace Place’s mission of helping it’s people in knowing the grace of God in a saving way; growing in the grace of God in a maturing way; and showing the grace of God in a ministering way.
