All children up to the age of twenty are welcomed and warmly greeted by the teachers. We gather in a circle and sing a hymn, read verses from the Bible together, and say the Lord’s Prayer.
Then the children go to their classes with their teachers where they learn and understand how to use in their daily lives the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, and the specific lessons emphasized in the Weekly Bible Lesson that has been studied that week by Christian Scientist the world over.
Each child is encouraged to know his identity as a child of God and to feel and express his or her God-likeness as they make daily decisions and interact with family and neighbors through the week. The Divine Love that is enjoyed in Sunday School is a gift that many adults are able to call upon well into adulthood and throughout their lives.
