We praise and thank God for giving us a wonderful Sunday School Department here at ACOG. By God’s grace , the Sunday School Department continues to provide a solid foundation in teaching the Word of God to all ages. Currently we have about 60 students and 9 classes taught by 9 different teachers. Along with the 9 full time teachers, God has also blessed us with 6 Substitute teachers who are willing to serve in the absence of any full time teachers. Along with our regular Sunday school classes, this year we have also introduced a one year bible reading plan to motivate our children to read the entire New Testament in one year. So far we are having a very good response. We were also able to successfully conduct this year’s Sunday School Anniversary in a blessed manner based on our Sunday school theme for last year. We also conducted an art competition for all the children and provided an opportunity to select the Sunday School theme for next year from the winning art work.
Sunday School is currently being held every Sunday from 9AM – 10AM
