A Sunday school is an institution designed to teach people, usually children, about Christianity. Even though we are away from our native place, it is our responsibility to show up and train up children according to our own believes and traditions. Examples and wise guidance by parents and teachers are very important to grow a child in the knowledge of God from the tender age .
