 SUNDAY SCHOOL

TEACHERS, PARENTS, & STUDENTS - Working Together for the Glory of God

Vision Statement

Our vision is to lead our children in becoming youth of strong spiritual character, as they grow, developing a powerful relationship with Jesus Christ for the purpose of connecting with other youth and guiding them to God.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to establish and create a safe environment where our youth can learn about authentic praise and worship to the Lord, as they learn about the Holy Spirit and baptism in the name of Jesus Christ.

Core Values

  • We believe in speaking in tongues as evidence of the Holy Spirit.

  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and it is our authority for all we do. 

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the model we use to guide our lives.

  • We believe in the power of Prayer, Praise, and Worship and strive to make it a priority in all that we do.

  • We believe that Sunday school is an integral part of the church which is the body of Christ and as individual members; we must all work together for the glory of God.

AT SUNDAY SCHOOL

The teachers at House of Mercy will work with students and their families to support a spiritual relationship with God as students connect with their families. Some of our key connections with families will be:

  • Communicate regularly with our pastor and coordinator for spiritual guidance and direction from God.

  • Communicate with parents to discuss questions or concerns about the requirements of the lessons.

  • Provide information to help parents support the children’s ministry.

  • Use the word of God as our tool for instruction.

AT HOME

Parents are an integral part of the HOM’s children’s ministry. As a HOM parent, we encourage you to support, inspire, and assist your child to develop a relationship with God by:

  • Discussing and reviewing your child’s lessons, objectives, and activities.

  • Reading the Word of God and reinforcing key scriptures to support your child’s spiritual growth at home.

  • Listening to your child’s concerns, testimonies, and questions.

  • Engaging in prayer, praise, and worship at home.

House of Mercy Students

House of Mercy students will understand the importance of being a responsible Christian. A responsible Christian student will come to Sunday School on time, prepared and ready to learn. To make connections between learning at home and at school, HOM students will:

  • Take home, review, and discuss lessons or activities with parents.

  • Ask for help when they have trouble understanding our core values.

  • Participate in classroom discussions and group work.

  • Read and reflect on the Word of God at home.

  • Model fruitful behavior learned in class to solve real-world situations.

  • Pray, praise, and worship at home.

As Teachers, Parents, and Students, We All Must Exemplify and Model Good Citizenship and Our Christian Values

What Does It Mean To Work Together?

To work together means that parents, students and teachers must be under one mind and one accord for the benefit of the student. Our goal is for parents and teachers to work together to ensure that our Sunday School children develop a strong relationship with God.

 

Effective principals:

  • Baptism in the name of Jesus Christ

  • A heart for Praise and Worship

  • Prayer and fasting

  • Holiness and Modesty
