EXPECTATIONS FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS
The Jersey Baptist Church
WHAT YOUR CHURCH EXPECTS OF YOU AS A SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER:
See your place of service as an opportunity for joyful service to our
Lord--do your best in dependence on His Spirit. Be a positive,
enthusiastic, excited supporter of your church. Strive to teach
from the overflow of what God is doing in your life.
Be in your place of service each week during your entire term of
service, arriving at least ten minutes early (fifteen for children
and preschool workers).
In case of absence, notify your division or department
director as early as possible. Use the curriculum materials
provided by the church; follow the scripture passage and central
truth, but feel free to modify the teaching aim and lesson plans to
best meet your pupils' needs.
Develop personal relationships with your pupils; learn their needs
and address those needs in your teaching. Take active
responsibility for attendance in your class. Work closely with your
class outreach leader and deacon in involving and supporting
the entire class in doing outreach and ministry.
Maintain a quality personal devotional time. Plan to participate in training
opportunities. Prepare diligently each week for the class session,
and try new teaching methods occasionally. Set personal goals to
improve your teaching, visitation, and witnessing skills.
