There’s wisdom in the old saying, “If it’s not broke don’t fix it.” That may the be the case in your class experience. If so, then press on and may God bless you.
More often than not though, if we take an honest look at the way we do things, we find that they can be done better. There is always a benefit to honest evaluation and some freshness in the way we do things.
You can do that evaluation alone, or you can do it as a group.
Some important things to consider are:
- Are our lesson times conversational enough, or should there be more discussion?
- Do we have care group sharing time often enough, or too much?
- Are we having the same fellowships over and over? Should we try something new?
- Is it time to redecorate our classroom space?
- Should we have our chairs arranged in rows or circles or curves?
- What do chairs in rows or circles communicate about the class structure?
- Am I teaching a lecture to a class set up for discussion?
- Am I asking for discussion when the room is set up for a lecture?
- Should we use more visual aids in the lesson?
- Should some new people read, or take prayer requests?
The new year is a great time to ask some questions that may lead to refreshing our Sunday School experience. In any case, a little evaluation is always a good thing. Did any of these questions lead you to consider something new?
