Sunday School

About

Sunday School groups meet every Sunday morning before the main worship service at 8:45 A.M. The Sunday School Ministry is the primary discipleship ministry of First Baptist Powell. The chief objective of Sunday School is to provide a setting that encourages spiritual growth and assimilation into our faith family.

Philosophy

The Bible reveals in Acts 2:42-47 that the early church was driven by the following purposes: ministry, discipleship, evangelism, fellowship, worship, and prayer. While LifeGroups are not “small churches within the church,” they are, to a large degree, a microcosm of the local church. Consequently, the purposes of the local church should be reflected in Sunday School.

The Sunday School Ministry at First Baptist Powell accomplishes its chief objective of encouraging spiritual growth primarily through fulfilling the purposes of discipleship and fellowship.

  • Discipleship occurs largely through interactive Bible studies, yet discipleship also occurs in a more intimate setting through the Small Group structure. Providing Bible studies that are relevant for daily living and interactive is the most important element of Sunday School.
  • Fellowship, grounded and spurred on by the group’s commonality in Christ, is the second most important element of Sunday School. Fellowship occurs not only through organized gatherings, but also through day-to-day living, – where members find encouragement, camaraderie, direction, and prayer support.
