Sunday School



Proverbs 22:6 says “Train the child in the manner to grow so that he will not depart from it when he becomes old”.  The significance of this verse was recognized by the leaders of Calvary Baptist Church and started Sunday school ministry.  Frankly speaking, Sunday school ministry preceeded the Church Ministry.  In the year 1913, a School for girls was established by Missionary Miss Blackdar in a rented house.  In this same place every Sunday, Sunday school was conducted and children were taught Word of God and songs.  Those children who attend the Sunday school of Calvary Baptist Church were placed in great responsible jobs in todays modern world.  By the year 1974, around 100 children attended Sunday school.  Currently 400 children are attending Calvary Sunday school.  Around 20 teachers were trained to impart Godly knowledge to these kids in Sunday school.


            The first Sunday school Superintendent was Mrs. G. Dayamni, every Sunday, Sunday school commences from morning 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. from the very beginning money from Church income was bring for the development of Sunday school teachers were given opportunities to update their skills and talents to train kids.  On Christmas eve, many competitions were conducted to the Sunday school children to encouratge them.  Calvary Baptist Church, Sunday school children had won any prizes in various competitions around the city.  On every Palm Sunday, a special procession is done by Sunday school children on the streets of Vizag city distribyting Gospel tracts.  The Sunday school ministry is not only limited to Christians rather it is extended even to non-Christian children.
