Without the obvious answer of "Find another class/church/etc.", does anyone have any advice for someone who wishes his Sunday School class could be better? Okay, what do I mean "better." Well, for starters, I don't think I'm really asking too much to have the specific verses for the next week's class given out at the end of class. Second, I want some doctrine taught and taught clearly. I realize every instructor has differing approaches, but there has to be definitive instruction on core concepts given regularly. I'm not saying spend ten hours per verse; this is not usually necessary and is often counterproductive as it bogs the lesson down. I see a way to teach the doctrine of the Bible in a Sunday morning class each week and keep people coming back and integrate activities to not let the class dwindle and at most remain the same size, yet my teacher (AND HIS WIFE) seem set on either retaining control of the class or letting the church handle the outreach. This saddens me as I see visitors coming, but not returning after a couple of visits or even just one because the instructors are simply ill-prepared 75% of the time and consistently use their kids or their dogs or this or that as whimsical excuses for why they are late or have a ten-minute lesson. Yet they still try to retain control over the class and refuse to delegate any functional positions or responsibilities. Any realistic suggestions? Thanks!
