nurturing our spirits, we learn and develop the basic building blocks
of what it means to be a Christian. We learn these things in
Sunday School, in Bible Studies, Small Groups, and Fellowship
Groups. It is an ongoing process. We learn as students and
we mature as teachers and doers. Together we support each other
and walk with each other side-by-side on this journey.
From its very
beginnings, the Oakland Church was a Sunday School. Although
taught at all age groups, Sunday School has particularly been the
foundation for introducing Christ to children in the community.
Even if their parents did not attend church, they saw benefit in the
church teaching their children Christian values. As the children
grew, so to did their understanding of what it meant to be Christian.
