My family and I attend Sunday school. We love it. Thats where you get more "personal" if you will. You can see things maybe in a different perspective. Our youngest two children, their Sunday school class..is learning why we do what we do in church. And a couple Sundays a month..they help lead with some of the church service. They teach them why we have offerings, and get togethers, ect....My very youngest wakes up every morning asking "is it church today"....its amazing to hear this and see the growth in our children today. My oldest....12, can not get enough of Youth group. Its truly a blessing.

I don't attend...at first it was because I couldn't get my children to go...I go Sunday-Sunday night and wedneday night...not to mention every single meeting or bible study that offered otherwise. Now my children go to Sunday school...I do not..why? I have no idea. I pray the Lord convicts my soul and gets my rearend in gear. By the time I get breakfast done, I usually come here. I can do this anytime...I need to go to Sunday school with them. No excuses...just plain laziness, I think.

My wife and I and our youngest (who's still a minor) go...but our two adult children choose not to go. We're letting them take the reins over parts of their lives - just hoping they'll make the same choices we do, but it's no longer mandatory.

We just built our first building and we are supposed to start Sunday School for adults in the fall for the second service. The first service the rooms are used for the young children. We also have small groups that meet during the week. We have 12-14 groups with probably 8-12 in a group. Mine meets on Wednesday evening and we have 12 in our group.
What's nice it that they put notes from the sermon and discussion questions on the Internet and we just print them off. You can discuss the sermon in more depth. Or your group can do any other study that is wants. Our group is doing a DVD series called, "In the Dust of the Rabbi."

I love my Sunday Class too. We have been blessed to have a format where our Sunday School teacher acts a facilitator. There are about 20 faithful members with about 5 others who attend when they don't have to work.

Yes, I attend Sunday School pretty much every week.
