Who We Are

CHURCH SCHOOL


Preamble


It is an accepted pre-supposition that the church must teach about its faith, worship and mission. This teaching must also benefit both those within and outside the Church. The Church School Committee lay emphasis on teaching children in the Church setting

Role

The Church has a duty to educate her members concerning her life in faith, worship and mission The Church School is therefore the logical expression of the responsibility of the adult members of the Church to the Children. Deut. 6:4-9, Prov.1:7, Eph 6:14 and it is the demonstration of obedience of the Church to her Lord who says,” let the children come to me”, Mark 10:14 in teaching the youth, the foundation of Church is laid. The Church School seeks to introduce the children to the truth of the Bible, so that the child may be led to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Saviour and grow in His grace. 2 Peter 3:18 The Church School is open to children normally from four to twelve years old and should be registered in their respective classes and grades. A graduation certificate is issued to the child after completing each grade’s work. The Church School teachers are appointed and commissioned by the Parish Session to teach in the Church School. The teacher is dedicated and registered as a member of the PCEA Church School Teacher’s fellowship of his/her congregation and entered in the ‘Teacher’s Roll call of the local Church. The teacher is then issued with a teacher’s card and badge.
