Schools Sunday

Home. Hands. Heart.

Schools play an important part in the life of our community, and a formative role in the lives of children. When our own schooling is finished, it is easy to forget this fact.

Sunday is a day where, as Christians, we remember the importance that God places on children, and we join Him in that interest by praying for local schools and their wider communities.

Schools Sunday was held on 19 February 2017. People were asked to plan a specific Sunday morning that focused on schools. This was an excellent way to remind Christian students and school staff members that God is not confined to a Sunday service, but goes with them to school. This year’s theme: Home, Hands, Heart explored Jesus’ welcome into the home of Mary and Martha.

Of course, if you missed out on celebrating Schools Sunday in February, it’s not too late to choose another day for your church. We have collated a number of resources, either to plan a complete Sunday service, or a segment such as a skit or sermon, if that will best suit your congregation and circumstances.
