Sunday School begins at 9:30 am
English Ministries at Edmonton Chinese Baptist Church oversees Sunday School starting in grade seven. Using a mix of Bible studies and Bible-based topical studies and through interaction and instruction, our goal is that students will be able to understand the Bible and apply it to their lives in a way that they can share with others. Everyone is welcome to join Sunday School, Sunday mornings at 9:30 am.
Sunday School programs typically involve a lesson or a series of lessons taught by a teacher, who may be a pastor or a volunteer. The lessons are usually based on the Bible and are designed to help participants understand the teachings of the Bible, learn about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, and develop their faith in God.
The goal of Sunday School is to provide a supportive and educational environment where attendees can learn about their faith and grow in their relationship with God. Sunday School is an important part of the Christian community and is often seen as a way to help young people develop strong moral and spiritual values that will guide them throughout their lives. Our method of learning includes in-depth knowledge-based bible studies, fun yet challenging discussions, as well as interactive learning modules.
Current Class: “That’s Not How You Read” The Book of Matthew
The Book of Matthew is one of the four Gospels in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. It is believed to have been written by the apostle Matthew, who was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ. The book is primarily concerned with the life, teachings, and ministry of Jesus Christ and is written to a Jewish audience.
The Book of Matthew is organized into 28 chapters and covers a wide range of topics, including Jesus’ birth and baptism, his teachings and miracles, his crucifixion and resurrection, and his ascension into heaven. One of the unique features of Matthew is its focus on the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy in the life of Jesus. Throughout the book, Matthew quotes from the Old Testament to show how Jesus fulfilled various prophecies and was the long-awaited Messiah.
The book is also known for its teachings on the kingdom of God, the role of discipleship, and the importance of obedience to God’s laws. It includes several of Jesus’ famous parables, such as the Parable of the Sower, the Parable of the Mustard Seed, and the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats. It also includes several of Jesus’ teachings on the Sermon on the Mount, which is considered one of the most important teachings of Jesus and is widely quoted by Christians today.
In addition to its teachings, the Book of Matthew is also notable for its depiction of Jesus as a teacher, miracle worker, and king. The book emphasizes Jesus’ divine nature and portrays him as a powerful and authoritative figure who came to establish God’s kingdom on earth. Overall, the Book of Matthew is a key text for understanding the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and is widely read and studied by Christians today.
