"Come to Jesus, Bring every child to Jesus"
Motto of the Mar Thoma Church Sunday School
But Jesus called the children to him and said,
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these"
Luke 18:16 New International Version (NIV)
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The reformers of the Malankara Church realized the importance of Bible Study, as essential for the spiritual renewal and growth. The establishment of Sunday Schools thus became a natural development in the way of Christian nurture. The formal inauguration of the Sunday School Samajam comprising all the Sunday Schools which had already been started in the parishes took place at Maramon Convention in 1905. Mr. V.P. Mammen (Later, Vicar General V. P. Mammen Kasseessa) was elected as the first General Secretary. The growth and development of the Sunday School Samajam as one of the leading Christian Education organizations in India was the result of the extraordinary organizing ability of Rev. V. P. Mammen and his untiring efforts during a period of 47 years.
The Christos Mar Thoma Sunday School is affiliated to the Mar Thoma Sunday School Samajam headquartered in Thiruvalla, Kerala, India. Our Sunday School is part of the Southeast Region of the North America Diocese of the Mar Thoma Church. Christos Sunday School is blessed with about 120 children and 34 dedicated teachers. Classes are from nursery to 12th grade and are held every Sunday from 9:00 am to 10:30 am. Classes are conducted for one and a half hours, while all children assemble together for half an hour Praise and Worship. Teachers, students and parents give inspirational devotional talks during Praise and Worship sessions.
Goals of the Christos Sunday School are:
