If you have read my posts, you know I am a Sunday school guy. Specifically, I am a fan of Lifeway Sunday school. I believe it works, and I think churches will grow if they use it correctly. Read David Francis’ books on Sunday school. Download then free at Lifeway’s website. There are simple things you can do that will help a great deal.
Today, I want to challenge you to try one simple trick. One little thing that I’ve seen work over and over. Pastors, this ifs for you, and it needs to come from you. On Sunday morning when you stand up to preach, say something like this:
“I hope you were in Sunday school (or whatever you call it) because we have done great classes. If you don’t attend a class, I want to invite you to try one out next week.”
Do this for 5 weeks in a row. Five times, a month plus one, unless it’s a five Sunday month. It’s short, of won’t cut into your message. Try it and see what happens. I believe it will be a great blessing for you.
