Great Expectations

Great Expectations: Planting Seeds for Sunday School Growthasks the question: What do you expect from your Sunday School ministry? LifeWay Sunday School director David Francis answers that question with a book and accompanying set of training materials that teach the concept of making Sunday School the “second step” in your church’s disciple-making process. Striking a balance between biblical community and biblical content, a Great Expectations Sunday School will bridge the gap between the influence of small groups and discipleship groups in your church.

Great Expectations

  • Challenges you to expand your own expectations for Sunday School and to inspire a Great Expectations Sunday School in your church.
  • Helps you become intentional about growing your Sunday School in numbers and influence.
  • Leads you to embrace Sunday School as the most viable tool for assimilating people and involving them in Bible study.

The Great Expectations Sunday School Launch Kit will help you plan a Sunday school launch weekend, with training for all Sunday School leaders, time for celebrating the victories of the past 12 months, and setting the course for next year.

The kit provides

  • An Administrative Guide with step-by-step suggestions for planning a Sunday School Launch Weekend
  • Posters for creating large displays
  • Four sermon ideas
  • Leadership training materials
  • A plan to launch a strategic Sunday school year
  • A CD-ROM with everything needed to plan and conduct the weekend, including clip art
