Genesis. Vision. Mission
The Sunday School began in 1975 with a handful of students at the Pre-School and Primary levels. Today, the Sunday School has grown into one of the largest ministries in GPC, with the heavy responsibility of sowing seeds in the hearts and minds of the young ones. Currently an average of 200 students are enrolled in Pre-school to Secondary, from ages 3 to 16 years of age, and about 35 students at Ascent (classes for students ages 17 and above).
The vision of the Sunday School is “Students growing in Christlikeness” and its mission is “to teach our students to love Christ through the studying and obeying of the Word, prayers and fellowship”. There are four key activities in the Sunday School to fulfil the mission and realise the vision:
- Teaching the Word of God through purposeful lessons;
- Touching and engaging lives through pastoral care;
- Training lives through role modelling; and
- Transforming lives through persistent prayer.
Sunday School adopted the D6 Curriculum in Sep 2018 based on the principles of Deuteronomy 6:5-9:
- Loving God;
- Loving His Word; and
- Teaching the children to do the same.
With the D6 resources provided for the home, Sunday School is also leveraging on parents as the primary disciplers of their child/children. This is also one of the approaches to meet the spiritual needs of its students.
