In collaboration with Scripture Union in Rwanda (Ligue pour la Lecture de la Bible au Rwanda), Shyogwe Diocese organized a training session for 34 Pastors and 68 Sunday school teachers. The training took place in Halleluiah Training Center from 3rd to 4th June 2016. The theme was about how to edify children within the Church.
Indeed, our church has a big number of youth and children. But we have not a specific program and even specialists to help them. That is why from two years ago, Shyogwe Diocese decided to emphasize its effort on Sunday school volunteers empowerment by providing them all tools they need.
During the opening ceremony of the training session, Rev. Joseph SEHORANA explained to the participants how it is very necessary to equip our children with the Word of God from the early age as it is recommended by God in Deuteronomy 6:7. Many Rwandan proverbs show that it is easy to educate young children more than elders. A child is like a foundation of the house under construction; if we need a real church and real community today and tomorrow, lets’ equip our children with the Word of God from today.
