Reply to "Discussing the Return, Rebuild, and Renewing of Sunday School as we come out of the pandemic"

The pandemic has definitely been a learning experience. So what have our losses taught us about our needs?  And what should "stay lost"?

Here are two lessons or "finds" that immediately come to mind:

  • The importance of reaching people outside of our buildings and "events." (If the church trends and statistics are right, this "find" will only increase in importance.)

  • The importance of training parents to be their children's primary Christian educators. (We knew it was important, but the past year has exposed how far we have to go.)

A few things we don't want to "return to and renew" but should stay lost:

  1. The "can't-do" spirit. Time to shake that attitude from our sandals.

  2. Dysfunctional or disruptive volunteers. Oy.

  3. Fluff programs and events that don't include teaching or promote discipleship.

  4. Low standards. I'm looking at YOU children's sermons, classroom environments, and creativity.

  5. YOUR "STAY LOST" SUGGESTION HERE: ________________________________.
