Our Commitment as Sunday School Teachers

Believing that the privilege of guiding others in their discovery and application of Scripture is worthy of my best, I commit toÖ

  • Continually develop my personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Mark 10:21).

  • Prioritize my conduct in keeping with the principles of the Bible and seek the Holy Spiritís help in my life (Ephesians 4:1).

  • Maintain a Christ-like witness (James 1:22; Ephesians. 5:18, James 3:1-2).

  • Be faithful to my class by arriving at least 15 minutes prior to the class session and, in case of an unavoidable absence, notifying my director and securing a replacement (1 Corinthians 4:2).

  • Take the required time I need each week to prepare for the teaching session and seek to incorporate my own gifts in my teaching (2 Timothy 2:15).

  • Use the Bible as my main curriculum resource and help my class discover and apply the truth of Scripture (Psalm 119:16).

  • Seek to build community in my class by helping class members and prospects know one another and support each other in prayer, fellowship, and ministry (Galatians 6:2; Acts 2:46).

  • Contact prospects and absentee members on a regular basis (Matthew 10:6).

  • Make sharing my faith a regular part of my daily life (Matthew 28:19).

  • Attend regularly scheduled Sunday School teacher meeting (Hebrews 10:25).

  • Participate in one or more Sunday School training events this year (2 Timothy 2:15).

  • Personally support the overall ministry of my church through my prayers, financial giving, and regular participation in worship and fellowships (1 Thessalonians 5:17; Malachi 3:10; Hebrews 10:25).

  • Lead my class members toward complete participation in the ministries of my church (1 Corinthians 4:16-17).

With Godís help, I will seek to do my best in fulfilling this covenant.
