AURORA, Ind.—Sunday School is back at Dearborn Baptist Church! The church had suspended meetings because of the COVID-19 shutdown. On Sept. 20 the church reopened for in-person worship and teaching. To help prepare teachers for the reopening, the church held a Regular Baptist Press teacher training seminar.
“Doctrine is, quite literally, the teaching of the church,” says the church on its website. It is “what the church understands to be the substance of its faith. While it is no substitute for the personal experience of the new birth, neither is it simply an intellectual hobby of a few—something that doesn’t really matter.” Dearborn Baptist Church makes teaching a priority through its Sunday School and Adult Bible Fellowships. And it chooses RBP’s Strong curriculum as one of its teaching resources.
For the training seminar, RBP Field Coordinator Alan Wilson led three workshops, ending with “How to Get the Most out of Your Curriculum.” On the Sunday after the seminar, Pastor Darrell Sparks read Psalm 78:1–8, a passage instructing Israel to teach the generations about God. Then Alan brought the morning message, “How to Revive Your Sunday School.” After the service, the church family hosted a picnic honoring their Sunday School teachers.
