Sunday School Start
The foundation of the Women In Truth ministry is the Church Sunday School Class. It is here where Jesus is able to reach out with an unconditional love to hurting, insecure women like no where else.
  • It is here where women begin to feel comfortable, as an accepted and respected part of the church family.
  • It is here where women finally open up their ears to God's Word and begin to understand how it applies to their life.
  • It is here where women can be offered a wide variety of spiritually enriching experiences, other than on Sunday morning.
  • It is here where women begin to be trained to use their spiritual gifts to serve others.
  • It is here where women discover God's plan and purpose for their lives.
  • It is here where women become leaders among women, reaching out to help other needy women!

Until a woman finds this kind of loving fellowship and friendship with other Christian women, they will quickly depart from the church.

The goal of the WIT Sunday School classroom is to create a warm, friendly, non-intimidating room where women can have a loving fellowship while growing spiritually in Christ.

After years of trial and error, the following steps have proven to be the most successful.

However, we recommend at first you use your own creativity with "what you have available" to create a cozy, cheerful class room.  It may be one pot of flowers and a coffee pot!  In time, you will be able to add the items I've mentioned. The most important thing is to "get the class going!"  Remember, anything is better than nothing and will be greatly appreciated!  In reality, your unconditional, nonjudgmental love is the most important single ingredient in this classroom!

  • WIT Welcome Sign:  Hang a sign immediately outside of your door so that women will easily see and find your room!  Don't have them wandering around the church or they may leave!
  • Door Greeters:  Designate your most loving ladies to stand at the door and welcome others in!  She is the most important representative of your Sunday School class.  Similar to a commercial airline flight attendant who welcomes everyone aboard the plane!  "A crabby or nonchalant greeting instigates a negative flight.  A warm greeting instigates a positive flight!"  She should learn the ladies name and introduce her to others immediately so there is a "feeling of family."  The next step is for others to offer her refreshments and assist her in finding a chair.
  • Enrollment:  Only when the lady is comfortable in her chair should you sit down next to her with an enrollment form and help her fill it out.  You may do it for her if you suspect she can not do it herself.  Don't assume all women can read or write!
