Here are three simple steps to improve your Sunday School class - even if you're not the teacher, you can talk with your teacher about implementing these improvements.
1). Send a weekly email. Every week, email to your class: prayer requests, praises, birthdays, anniversaries, upcoming Scripture you're teaching on, and upcoming lunches / mission opportunities. Members in your class will begin to look forward to your email of FYI - I recommend it have a, "Everything you need to know" format in case someone misses several Sundays.
2). Plan get togethers outside of class. A monthly lunch, partner with a local non-profit your class can serve together, organize a cookout at the park, summer pool party, and plan a Christmas party. There should be opportunities outside of class for building friendships.
3). Contact class members who've missed two consecutive Sundays. Keeping a role will grow your class - write, email, text or call attendees whom are absent. They need to know they were missed. Folks should be expected to attend every Sunday - spiritual growth matters. Establish a, "We want you here" culture. Raise the bar of expectation.
The new school year is about to begin - now is the time for Sunday School outreach and a recommitment to the blessing of being apart of Sunday School.
