Have you ever had a person ask you to re-baptize her, and how did you respond?

I just finished leading a discipleship class with some senior high students. I thank the Lord for the way he blessed this class!

How do we train Sunday School teachers for the long-term health of our Sunday School programs?

I'm very thankful for all of our Sunday School teachers. They are all gifted people and they sacrifice their time to disciple our children.

I think it's time to conduct an annual training and visioning session for Sunday School teachers. Does anyone have a program or outline that I could borrow?
