Unique Names for Sunday School and for Sunday School Classes

Saturday 28th February, 2009

During my first year of The Sunday School Revolutionary, I wrote a blog entry entitled What to Name a New Adult Sunday School Class?. I did so because blog software showed me that many people were searching for names for new Sunday School classes. Since that time, many more people have repeated that search.

In What to Name a New Adult Sunday School Class?, I wrote the following:

Some churches and classes simply call the class by the age group or gender:  young adults, middle adults, men, women, singles, college & career, 30 something, 40 something, etc.  With multiple departments of adults, some call the classes by numbers and letters, such as Coed 2A. Sometimes the numbers run from youngest to oldest and sometimes vice versa.

I have seen classes named simply after the teacher, such as Ron's class or the Williams class. I have seen classes named after biblical characters such as David, Solomon, Peter, Paul, Mary, Martha, Lazarus, etc. I have seen classes named after missionaries of the past and present. Or how about the fruit of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control? Have you considered Greek words, like Agape, Koinonia, etc. There have been classes named after Saints of church history and even of those of that church.

Because of the varied experience of the thousands who have access The Sunday School Revolutionary since it began in the Spring of 2006, I want to ask for your help with two things.

  • First, because I want to share even more suggestions for names of new classes, I want to ask you to share some of the unique names for Sunday School classes in your Sunday School. Feel free to share the story/history behind the name, if there is one.
  • Second, because more and more churches are calling Sunday School by other names, what do you call it? I have heard many names like Adult Bible Fellowship to Bible Study to Life Groups and more. Again, if there is a story/history behind the name change, please share it.

Press the Comments button below to leave your names for classes and/or for Sunday School. And add this post to your favorites so you can check back to see how others have responded. I look forward to reading your Comments. My bottom line encouragement for you is to regularly start new classes. They tend to reach new people, reclaim dropouts, and mobilize more people into service. They tend to be more evangelistic and to do more ministry. New classes are needed in order to care for more people. Start new classes. Be revolutionary!

    How about Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. In the book of Daniel, they all refused to blend in.

    Or how about Salt, Light, Cross, and Angels--none of which are to blend in.

    Okay, Revolutionary community. What say ye? Offer your suggestions.

    One thought comes to my mind: Timothy--because Paul told him to let no man despise his youth (1 Tim. 4:12).

    Another option: Children of God (1 John 5:12).

    re: Unique Names for Sunday School and for Sunday School Classes

    Many which come to mind include women of the Bible: Hannah, Deborah, Ruth, Naomi, Esther, Dorcas, Elizabeth, Mary (Blessed are you among women), Joanna, Lois, and more. Check out this website for a full list: http://www.christiananswers.net/dictionary/women.html. Phrases about each of these women could also be used. I also think of Noble Character or Rubies or Women Who Fear the Lord (from Proverbs 31).

    Hi All,

    A name should reflect what the class should be about doing.....that is serving the LORD!! We named our Sr Adult Class: FAITHFUL SERVANTs - JOHN 12:26 If any man serve ME; let him follow ME; and where Iam, There shall also my servant be: If any man serve Me, him will the Father honor. Take what you have learned in class and apply it to the community around you. May the LORD lead you in the selection of your class name. Blessings, Jim

    re: Unique Names for Sunday School and for Sunday School Classes

    Thanks for your investment in this important age-group. There are many options suggested in this blog post which would be appropriate, such as biblical characters, fruit of the spirits, and more. You might also think about the mission and purpose for the class.

    One I like from Paul to Timothy is "Despising None" (for let no one despise your youth). Timothy was a young adult. Two others I like are "Living Sacrifice" and "Not Conformed" from Romans 12: 1 and 2.

    The name for our Senior Adult Class is The Prime Time Class because we are living in the prime time of our lives. Many of us now have more time to do things for the Lord, our families and friends.

    Our Teen Class name is The Brink because each of them have reached a place of decision in their lives. Commit to Christ,education choices, career decisions, relationships, etc.

    Our children in grades 1-5 are in Adventure Park.

    We are considering naming our new class The Well, as a shout-out to one of my favorite stories, The Woman at the Well in John 4. The Well seems to capture a lot of the attributes that should characterize a Sunday School class: an encounter with Jesus, changed lives, engagement with the lost, spiritual refreshment, and a community turned upside-down by Jesus. Another name we used with a previous class was CrossTalk, which we thought conveyed the idea that it was discussion-oriented. Hope this contributes something to the discussion!

    Our student group is called WakeUp! Cafe and Bible Study. We moved it into the fellowship hall area of our educational building. It created a more friendly and less "class" atmosphere, and we are using that space for our youth ministry anyway, to accomodate a growing group. WakeUp! is what we all need to do so early on a Sunday morning, and it relates to the truth of Waking Up to truth and to the presence of Christ in our lives. And Cafe ... well, who doesn't like coffee???

    re: Unique Names for Sunday School and for Sunday School Classes

    Paul, I like the class name, Bliss!

    As far as alternative names for Sunday School, every alternative comes with challenges: (1) you have to explain the name/term, (2) you usually end up defining it as Sunday School in order for people to understand what it is, and (3) many terms tend to define Sunday School work too narrowly.

    For instance, the term, Bible Study, focuses only on teaching-learning. The term, ABF (adult Bible fellowship), primarily focuses on teaching-learning and fellowship, but what about reaching and being on mission? The term, Small Groups, is broad but does not help new people understand what it is. The term, LIFE Groups, usually requires defining what each letter in LIFE stands for in order to explain. The term, Growth Groups, can indicate a focus on reaching, relationships, and discipleship but may also be confusing to new people without advance explanation (they may assume only a focus on numbers).

    Paul, I hope readers will add some responses to this question!

    We named our young adults class FUSE (form, unite, serve, empower). Our seniors are called Prime Timers. Our youth group used to be oneighty, but recently changed names to The Way. Personally I liked oneighty better. We have "Sunday school" on Wednesdays during Bible study, and our 4-9 year olds have NFL (night for learning). 10-13 age is TNT (tweens n' teens). At my last church I ran a 4-11 year old's class and called it King's Kids. Hope that helps someone. We also have a drama team named SALT, but I really can't remember what it stands for :)

    Great church name and idea for classes. How about biblical references related to stones: David & Goliath, cornerstone, etc.?

    Our class was the Pairs and Spares and our Spares didn't like it and we changed to Bridge Builders and that was a good change for us.

    I was trying to think of a name for my fathers church that conveyed the purpose of the service. My father's church is very small, so there is only one class that everyone attend. What I came up with was, CSI (Christians seeking Instruction) which is what the bible is, our instruction manual for navigating this life. Be blessed.

    We are getting ready to start some Sunday school classes in our church. For the kids we have come up with "Blossoms", and "Sprouts". For the teens we have come up with "NexGen" as the next generation 2Peter 2:9. For the married couples class we have come up with "Home Builders". For the ladies class we have come up with "Precious Rubies" from Proverbs 31. For the men we have come up with "Might Men" because of David's might men. We are still working on the 50 and up age group. We are thinking, foundation, corner stone, solid rock, and legacy class. Any thoughts?

    In our community, our Wednesday night program is a community effort, with more than one church involved. Our program is called Moundridge Youth Ministries. I was brought in this year to reorganize the K-4 age group. We break down into 5 smaller groups, but I would like a name for each group. Out theme this year is "I am Second", but the group names don't necessarily have to go off that. Something fun, but faith based. Any ideas? (again, 5 groups)

    We have just bought a building for our church! We are working on the children's area and hoping to name the whole area plus each room. Can you help? We live out in the country and have a nature design for the children's area. We would like to tie in the nature theme with something biblical for our children's area name. Not sure yet what we want to do for the individual classrooms yet. Help please!!!

    We have all the children, age 9 and below, come down front at the very start of the morning service for what is called "KFC" or Kids for Christ.

    Also, I didn't see this mentioned on this site by anyone; BIBLE, Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. Not sure how one could work that in as a class name though.

    New church school superintendent who wants to dig deeper. How did you form your classes and why? Did participants request this ordering of age-based classes? This may shape the naming.

    re: Unique Names for Sunday School and for Sunday School Classes

    Jacquelyn, I was the one with the vision. I began by assigning birth year ranges to current adult classes. (I have discovered over the years that women tend to dislike age ranges more than birth years.) I tried to have no overlapping birth year ranges among women's classes, among men's classes, and among coed classes (except for singles and college). Then when a class grew and was nearing room capacity, I would start a class in the age group between that class and the older or the younger classes. I would take some years from the older class and some from the younger class to give to the new class. Where possible, I would approach the teachers of those classes and ask them to suggest a person within their classes. That encouraged some to support the new class. I hope that helps.

    re: Unique Names for Sunday School and for Sunday School Classes

    Epeli, changing the name depends on your local context. Some are having Sunday School on other days than Sunday. Some are changing the name to Life Groups to get away from the day of the week and to get away from some who have negative memories about "school." The key is to make sure that we do more than study the Bible. We must also (1) connect with, care for, and invite lost people and (2) care for, fellowship with, and minister through our members. If we teach, reach, and care, Sunday School (called by any name) will help the church to carry out the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

    We too are in the process of updating some class names and have read many great ideas on this page. We call our overal program on Sunday Mornings, L.I.F.E Hour - Learning is For Everyone, but as mentioned above we do call is Sunday School in general. Until now our Adult and Youth classes were called:

    Sr. Adults- The Pillars of Faith;

    Adult Class - Prime Time;

    Singles/College Ages - Challenge

    Youth class is: R.I.O.T (Revival In Our Times)

    5-8th grade- Focus

    The younger age groups had been called Kinder; Primary and PreTeen until now...
