Christian Education for Presbyterian Children
About Our Partner
The Presbyterian Church of Rwanda (EPR)
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 the curriculum used by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the Anglican Church, the Protestant Council of Rwanda has developed new resources in the local language for all the churches. Funds raised through this project were used to print additional copies of books for the new curriculum and for teacher training. Outreach’s partner, the Presbyterian Church of Rwanda, is seeking additional funding assistance to train Sunday School teachers, provide more teaching materials, and help churches construct modest rooms to serve as classrooms for the children. It is so sad to see children under trees outside in most cases for their worship. Children’s Bibles are in dire need.
Funds raised through this project were used to print additional copies of books for the new curriculum and more teachers have been trained. Additional funding will help the EPR train more teachers, provide additional teaching materials, and help churches create classrooms for the children.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $10,000 for teaching materials and training for Sunday School teachers as well as for children’s classrooms and children’s Bibles.
