Making Sunday School More Fun and Engaging

Let's face it, listening to someone read the teacher's guide directly and seeing their nose stuck in the book isn't very exciting. To make Sunday school more fun, start by talking to the children about ways to show respect for one another. Work together to create a poster that outlines how everyone will show respect and kindness, and find a place in the room to display it. Before each child enters the classroom, greet them by name and give them a hug, a handshake, or a pat on the back.

Ask if they are ready to enter the classroom. If not, they don't have to until they are. Point out positive behavior and help children seek positive attention. Maintain a clear and consistent routine each morning, with the same order of activities.

When teaching a lesson on the Gospels, for example, make sure to keep it fun without weakening your teaching. Remind Sunday School workers of the principles taught at Curtis Corner Baptist Church. Make churches the priority of Sunday School classes for adults as they can do everything that small groups can do and more, and offer the best format for discipleship. Encourage workers to grow in their understanding of techniques and how to use Sunday School effectively to please the Lord.

Incorporate visits to orphanages and hospitals into Sunday School programs. Preach a full message at the Sunday morning service about the importance of Sunday School once a year. Make Sunday School fun by announcing that there are no “official” motions in your song. Give children an opportunity to take charge of their Sunday school curriculum by collaborating with their peers.
