Sunday School

"Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD." (Proverbs 16:20)

Revival is not something the church can schedule and accomplish. But we can certainly wish it to happen. The church can pray, plead, study the matter, check the Scriptures, know its nature, its results, and what lasting changes have been produced during church history.

It is also possible to see the mistakes and lyings of the enemy and the exaggerations of leaders when blind zeal desires experiences for the sake of experiences and not the appropriation of their benefits for life in permanent sanctification.

In the process of wishing and preparing for a revival to take place, Sunday School plays a very important, I would say key, role. One of the great challenges of the Church in the 21st century is precisely the lack of solid and quality biblical information. It is ironic that in a time of so many facilities and so many technological resources there is a growing biblical ignorance among the people of God.

The Scriptures and many other resources such as dictionaries, commentaries, sermons and tools for exegesis and hermeneutics are available on all platforms. You can go to worship today with dozens of Bible versions and translations, a voluminous highly specialized library and the works of the most famous authors at the moment on your IPad and smartphone. Even so, ignorance does not seem to give way; rather, it gets worse every day. Lots of information and little transformation. Why?

Because the mind needs to be trained to be able to profitably use these resources. Texts in digital format are usually short, synthetic, without great challenge for reasoning, without great difficulties for the mind to form its own conclusions. The answers can come even before the question is asked. The Sunday School can be a place of faith intelligence, equipped with these and other resources, it can be the ideal space for deepening the most relevant issues that challenge the veracity and rationality of the Christian faith.

Always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15). It is clear from this passage that preparation, training of the mind, the ability to argue coherently are all part of mature discipleship, and a life of work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in the Gospel.

Therefore, it is a duty of local church leadership to invest in Sunday School. It is a moral duty of Christians to value this school for the edification of their souls and also for the spiritual and intellectual equipping of hearts and minds capable of witnessing and sharing the Gospel. When the Scriptures are disseminated, taught, and explained, when the sublime doctrines of Grace and the diligent study of all doctrines of the Trinity and the last things form part of the basic Sunday School curriculum, there will inevitably be an awakening to more grateful and vibrant worship. Undoubtedly, in a spiritual atmosphere ruled by truth and with worship sustained by reason, the way to revival can be opened.

Sunday School also plays an important role in evangelization. It should be a discipleship and sending center. Like the apostles who sat at the Master's feet and, after listening carefully to him, were sent on a mission. The same should happen in Sunday School. We sat down to hear about the Kingdom, the love of the Father, the Beatitudes, the practice of justice, etc.; we are sent to offer and give freely what we freely and by grace have received. In Sunday School we learn to live and act as disciples of Jesus, as those who learn the consciousness of being sent into the world.

Without a well-trained Church, with an intelligent and articulate faith; without a people with solid and well-identified biblical and doctrinal bases; without rational and vibrant worship, and without a deep identification as disciples of Jesus neither revival nor evangelism will be possible. Thanks be to God for Sunday School. Let us therefore value this wonderful “school of life”.

Bethel PCA offers Sunday school classes for all ages.


Bethel offers Sunday School classes for children of all ages, newborn to high school.

The purpose of each age appropriate class is to teach, encourage, and equip our covenant children.

We believe that all Scripture, in both the Old and New Testaments, has Christ as the central focal point. Each lesson is an opportunity for our students to learn who Christ is, why we need Christ, and what it means to be Christ’s disciples.

Where are the Children's classrooms?

  • Ages 1-3 meet in the nursery
  • Ages 4-8 meet in the office
  • Ages 9-11 meet in the last classroom in the hallway
  • Ages 12-18 meet in the Fellowship Hall


The adults meet in the sanctuary for Sunday school after the worship service, and the lecture is based on the sermon that was preached. Sunday school provides an opportunity for us to go deeper into the Scripture and talk about ways we can apply the sermon in our everyday life.

Sunday school happens every Sunday from 11:30am–12:00pm.
