Pastor takes a fresh look at a vital church tradition

August 14, 2013
By PHIL PERSING - Associate pastor , First Baptist Church of Mifflintown

For many American Christians, "Sunday school" is a household phrase that requires no explanation. The term often evokes nostalgic images of flannel-graph Bible stories, Scripture memory verses and endless choral rounds of Father Abraham, Jesus Loves Me and other such church-going children's musical standards. A quick survey of various local church ministries reveals that the Sunday school hour is still widely observed, though in some cases the (perhaps) antiquated phrase has been replaced with terms such as "Bible Classes" or "Growth Groups." Regardless of what packaging label one might stick on it, Sunday school doesn't seem to be disappearing from American Christianity any time soon.
