Sunday School

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house,
and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise."

Deuteronomy 6:5-7


The purpose/goal of Sunday School is to assist parents in teaching the words of the Bible and Catechism to the youth of Pilgrim by focusing on teaching the Bible (ESV, Concordia Publishing House, 2017), Luther’s Small Catechism (Concordia Publishing House, 2017), and Lutheran Service Book (Concordia Publishing House, 2006).This is carried out in two sections:


  • Small Catechism: A portion of the Catechism will be read aloud, the youth will begin learning and reciting them together.
  • Singing: The LSB will be used so that the youth become familiar with the hymnal and its contents.
  • ESV Bible: The appointed Bible Memory Verse of the week and the Bible Story being taught in that day’s Growing in Christ lesson will be read aloud for all to hear. The youth will begin learning and reciting Bible Verse of the week together.
  • Using Concordia Publishing House's Enduring Faith materials, the teachers will teach children and youth the Bible. Concordia Publishing House explains the Enduring Faith curriculum is this way:

    "As students progress through the program, they learn all about their Savior, Jesus Christ, what their Savior means for them, how to defend their faith, and how to teach the faith to others. Lessons spiral to help students go deeper each time they reencounter a Bible passage. Age-appropriate activities build skills to strengthen Bible learning."

  • Teachers will also work with the youth to learn by heart the words of the Catechism.  Preschool – 2nd grade classes will focus solely on the primary text. All other classes will work on both the primary text and explanations.
