The Purpose of Sunday School
In Article XX, Section 3, of the Manual of The Mother Church, our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, states: "The first lessons of the children should be the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:15-17), the Lord's Prayer (Matt. 6:9-13), and its Spiritual Interpretation by Mary Baker Eddy, Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:3-12). The next lessons consist of such questions and answers as are adapted to a juvenile class, and may be found in the Christian Science Quarterly Lessons, read in Church services. The instruction given by the children's teachers must not deviate from the absolute Christian Science contained in their textbook." As teachers turn to the divine Mind for wisdom and guidance, they will find within this God-inspired plan right and satisfying ways of teaching the children.
Of course, a teacher needs to be alert to the opportunities of becoming acquainted with his pupils, their thoughts, and their activities. He will then be qualified to teach within the experience of the children, and as a result they will learn to make use of Christian Science in their everyday lives and problems.
It is important also that the pupils gain a correct understanding of the fatherhood and motherhood of God, as well as the brotherhood of man, so that they in turn may find their true relationship to their heavenly Father, to each other, and to all men. As progress is made in this direction, their duty to God, to their Leader, as Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and to mankind unfolds naturally.
