LIMC Sunday School

          Teaching_The_Word_113114641              Welcome to LIMC Sunday School: For twenty-five years, Sunday School at Long Island Mar Thoma Church has been a priority. We believe that the Sunday School plays a pivotal role in sculpting our children to become active Spirit-led members of the Church.  Sunday School at Long Island over the years has developed radically and is continuing to do so.

                   At Long Island Mar Thoma Church, Sunday mornings begin with our Praise and Worship team leading students into worship and teaching them about it as well. There are morning devotions which prepare students for classes. With a 7:1 student-faculty ratio, LIMC Sunday School ensures that students receive enough attention and care. Students up to age 15 are taught lessons based on Biblical stories while our senior classes are more discussion-based so as to allow them to share their experiences and enable them to live out their faith.   Teachers are strongly encouraged to not only teach from the Bible but also demonstrate how Biblical concepts and truths are applied to the world around them. 

                   The Sunday School also conducts many fun-filled yet educational activities and programs to further growth of the students. This past year, Sunday school conducted a Spring Fest themed the “Hall of Faith.” Sunday School also conducted a One-Day Retreat in Camp DeWolfe at Wading River and a Fall Fest at church which sought to explain the significance of the St. James Liturgy and the objects used in worship at the Church.  However, Sunday School is not simply limited to the education but also the holistic growth of our students.  This past June, Sunday School also hosted a Talent Show where many of our students displayed their various talents. We’ve realized the amazing treasures God has lavished on us through our children.  As a Sunday School, we also share the love of Christ by participating in outreach projects. This year Sunday School assisted the children of the Aduvally Mission.  Students and their parents were encouraged to sponsor a child through a donation of $25.00.

                   But to accomplish the above, we have been dependent on the grace and blessing of our Heavenly Father who has provided more than we could ask for. And we are grateful for the support of all our church members who have lent a hand. We hope that you will continue to support the Sunday School.
