Overcoming Sunday School Problems, Part 2

Tuesday 23rd September, 2008

In Part 1, I said that no Sunday School is immune from Sunday School challenges, hurdles, obstacles, opportunities, or problems. What you call them may say more about how you feel about them. After years of doing Sunday School work, I am convinced that when you and your Sunday School team work together with God there are no problems that are insurmountable!

In Part 1, I talked about an article by Julia Shipley entitled 10 Problems Every Sunday School Faces. According to Shipley, "A recent survey gave insight into the problems that face the local Sunday school." I will share the problems from Shipley's article in three parts. In Part 1, I will shared the first three problems from her article: lack of good Sunday School literature and resources; lack of money; and lack of space. In Part 2, I will share her second three problems in all capitals followed by my commentary offering some possible solutions:

In Part 3, we will look at Shipley's final four problems: lack of children and youth; shortage of teachers and workers; lack of spiritual growth; and lack of training of Sunday School teachers and workers. Take a step back to give some perspective to the problems. Which of these is the biggest one your Sunday School faces? How can you turn it from a problem to a challenge and from a challenge to opportunity? You (plural) + God = more than enough to conquer it! Trust Him. Trust each other. Pray. Work together. Be revolutionary!
