Christian Education for Presbyterian Children
About Our Partner
In many Rwandan churches, there are more children present than adults, often as many as 150 children in a congregation. The inability to engage children in learning about the faith can weaken the church. Inspired by curricula used by the Presbyterian Church of Rwanda and the Anglican Church, the Protestant Council is working to develop new resources for all the churches. Funds raised through this project were used to print more copies of the second and third books of the new curriculum and for the teachers’ training. They are still looking for funding assistance so they can develop more teaching material, support teachers’ training and distribution of the material, and monitor and evaluate this important program. In 2017, plans for “Training of Trainers” in all churches across denominations will continue to be implemented.
There is now curriculum available for several grade levels of children. Funds raised through this project were used to print additional copies of the second and third books of the new curriculum and more teachers have been trained.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $15,000 for teaching material and training for Sunday School teachers as well as supplies including children’s Bibles.
