Some people think that Sunday School is only for children. Many parents send their children to Sunday, but don't attend it themselves. I was just wondering what are your thoughts about attending Sunday School? Do you attend? If not, why don't you attend?

Our church doesn't offer Sunday School for adults, although I know some churches do offer it for adults in addition to their regular service. But our Pastor goes through the Bible verse by verse, chapter by chapter (expositional style), not topical studies. I'm most comfortable with this, as we hear the WHOLE counsel of God, therefore not avoiding difficult or controversial topics. We also have Praise and Worship first. And, we have a midweek service as well. Personally, I look forward to Sunday services and can't imagine not attending.

Our church does not have it as well but I think it is an excellent idea. Much more intimate Q and A session.

Don't get any wrong ideas, guys!

Our church has Sunday School for adults, I'm surprised that some churches don't. It's where you form your friendships and really can have some great Bible study. My teacher is awesome.
