Oklahoma Baptists are reconnecting with Sunday School. For decades we have tried a variety of different programs and events to try to reach our state. Today, Oklahoma is more lost than it was twenty years ago. We have more churches and more programs, but we are experiencing fewer professions of faith, baptisms, and church attendance.
Our convention has decided that we are going to focus on reaching people with Gospel through relationships and small groups, often called Sunday School. In Oklahoma, we are putting evangelism back into Sunday School, and we believe that Sunday School is the church’s primary strategy to share the Gospel and make disciples.
The video below was shown at our annual meeting last night. We identify four key connectors for Sunday School groups that will help the church with its mission of making disciples. Here is our new definition of Sunday School:
Sunday School is the church’s primary strategy to connect people to Jesus,
His Truth, His community, and His mission.
