Teaching the Value of Regular Attendance

Many young people today feel that with their schoolwork, social activities, and so on they have a very full schedule, and sometimes they are inclined to believe that they do not have time for Sunday School. But when they are shown that the Sunday School offers them exactly what they need to make a full schedule lighter and brighter they usually are in their class on Sunday and put into practice during the week what they have learned.

A teacher in a branch church Sunday School shares with us the following experience of a class of older boys who became regular attendants at Sunday School when they were shown the practical value of the lessons:

"As a substitute teacher I was assigned a class of six boys in Sunday School. Five members were just entering either junior college or a university. The first Sunday only one member of the class was present. He explained that the others were all too busy then to come to Sunday School; however, later on they might be able to attend now and then.
