Many people believe that Christian education is simply teaching
Bible stories to children. While this is an important component of
Christian education, itís not completely accurate. Christian education
is about discovering what it means to be Christian in this time and in
this place. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus impacted the
lives of his followers then and now. Now is a different time and a
different place from the time of Jesus, and itís sometimes difficult to
determine how we bring forward the Gospel message to todayís world.
Christian education gives us the tools, the experience, and the
opportunity to converse with others who are making meaning of their
faith. It is helpful when this conversation and exploration begin
early. When children grow up attending Church school and discussing God
with their parents, they are more likely to develop a deep, life-sustaining faith.
Adults and children who are given a forum in which it is safe to
ask questions, to seek help, and to admit confusion about the church and
their belief, are helped to develop strong faith. St. Davidís has
programs available for all of Godís children.
