Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

Matthew 28:19-20

Come Together Right Now!!!

There is so much happening in the world today and as Christians, we look for that assurance that the Lord promised us in His word. In the 21st century, “Sunday School” has taken on many different names. While the name may have changed, the goal for Christians remains the same. In Sunday school “we come together” and remind one another that Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost,  teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” This scripture known as the Great Commission was the instruction that Christ left for us on Earth.

In Sunday School we “come together” to study the word of God so that we can know the will of God.  The Bible is so clear: 1 John 5:14 says that if we ask anything according to His will, He will answer us according to His will. When we study the Word and learn how much He loves us, we learn to trust Him more each day by His will. In Sunday School “we come together” and study that the word teaches us to renew our minds. Sharing His Word brings us to the place where we think the way He does. What a blessing to know that the Word of God is the only truth that can transform or change the way we think.


Remember, we lean on the assurance that God gives to us in times of trouble. Knowing and hiding the Word of God in your heart can give you strength when you do not even have the strength to pick up your Bible. When you study surrounded by those who love the Lord and want to be more like Him, you grow stronger in His word and we all grow stronger as the family of God! So, let us “come together” as we continue this journey to know more about the Lord and His plans for our lives!!!


See you in class!!

To God be the Glory, 

Mrs. Fay Ogletree,
Superintendent Children & Youth Division

5TZTaking Time to Talk Together Zion–brings age-appropriate online Sunday School lessons to our PreK through High School students and their families.  Using our materials from David C. Cook Publishing Company,  5TZ partners with families to help their children build loving relationships with Jesus Christ. We encourage adults to supervise, play, and–most of all–TALK with their children as they use this material to grow stronger in the Lord. If adults lead their children through the lessons, they will have a greater impact. For the security of our students and the material’s copyright, the class webpages are password protected. David C. Cook has made the digital material available due to the COVID-19 crisis and Zion thanks them for authorizing us to share it with our church family.  Interested in getting started with 5TZ?  Call or email the church office for the password.  You can also contact a Sunday School staff member. 5TZ Parent Teacher Orientation
