Linden Church of God

Sunday School is a great time to meet new people in our church. The small class sizes make it perfect for getting to know people and studying God’s Word together.

Sunday School: 9:40-10:30am

“Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in
Christ Jesus.” II Timothy 1:13

At Linden, we believe in the Scriptures and teach biblical truths and principles
in a distinctive style that relates to everyday living. In addition, we realize that families and
individuals need fellowship and recreation centered on Christ. Each class, particularly the adult
classes, provides activities to help meet the needs of the whole person spiritually, physically,
emotionally, and socially. Our Sunday school ministry provides the basis for building strong
families and lives that testify of God’s love and grace.

The Sunday School Ministry can open the door to:

• Growing Relationships
The Key to spiritual growth is being rooted and grounded in love. Each of us needs godly
relationships beyond the worship service experience. Sunday School provides the best
atmosphere to meet new people.

• In-depth Bible Study
More than hearing another sermon, Sunday School is involvement and you are a key player
to healthy discussions regarding spiritual growth.

• Small Groups
Beginning with Sunday School, a special close-knit circle of friends can be formed beyond
the walls of the church building providing a safe place to express concerns and an
atmosphere of healthy transparency.

Utilizing your God-given Spiritual Gifts in Service
Sunday School encourages you to be involved in exercising your spiritual gifts to mutually
uplift the body of Christ (Hebrews 10:24-25).
