Sunday School Circuits
Our Sunday School Circuit follows in the style of the old-fashioned horseback “Circuit Riders” who brought news from city to city on horseback. Our Circuit Riders use a different mode of transportation; they have traded in the saddles for a set of tires and ride motorcycles to get to each Sunday School. A weekly Circuit consists of 6 Sunday Schools in 6 different villages. All of our Circuit Riders are graduates of our BMW program and know the local language of the villagers so Sunday School classes can begin immediately. Getting to these Sunday School locations can be difficult if not even impossible by a vehicle other than a motorcycle. The roads are walking paths with crude bridges to go across rivers, and lots of rain with potholes and mud holes. Sunday School classes are held in a pavilion that we have built a Rescue Unit or land given to us in the local village.
What happens at Sunday School?
Every Sunday School class begins with singing.
2. Bible Lesson
A Bible lesson is taught with pictures that help tell the story.
3. Bible Memorization
Learning a memory verse hides God’s Word in their heart.
A craft is given to color; even though tables and benches are not available it doesn’t stop them from coloring on their knees, on the ground or a smooth surface of some kind
Games played together, may be a relay race.
To encourage the children to memorize verses we have a time for quizzing competition. The winners will be able to attend Boot Camp as the champions, which will give them a sense of self-worth that is desperately lacking in their lives.
We are teaching phonics to children and adults. The ABC’s are taught by a song. A flip chart teaches sounds of the letters and the phonics train helps reinforce the vowel sounds. Two and three letter words are introduced so that they can begin to read our phonics books. Phonics card games help reinforce lessons and they are enjoyed by all.
8. Teachers training
We train adults to become Sunday School teachers and trainers. The training program for Adult Sunday School teachers from the local village will help the class to continue to grow.
9. Altar Call
An invitation is given at the end of each lesson.
There are thousands of orphans and adults that need to attend a Sunday School. You can be a part of helping these people learn of Jesus Christ.
