The Mar Thoma Sunday School Samajam was founded in 1905. The growth and development of the Sunday School Samajam as one of the leading Christian education organizations in India was the result of the extraordinary organizing ability of Rev. V P Mammen and his untiring efforts for 47 years. The primary objective of the Sunday School is to lead children to dedicate their lives to God.
The goal of Sunday school is to "bring every child to Jesus". So that children can learn about Jesus at a very young age. As the scripture says, "Train a child in the way he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:06
Jesus said. "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Mathew 19:14
The Calgary Mar Thoma Church Sunday School operates under the operational guidelines of the Mar Thoma Sunday School, Diocese of North America and Europe. Our Sunday School is blessed with 48 children and 8 dedicated Teachers. Classes from Nursery to Grade 10 are held every week from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.
The goal of our church Sunday School is to teach today's kids the right path, so that they become better role models in society tomorrow and live a better Christian life as adults.
Calgary Mar Thoma Sunday School also organizes Vacation Bible School on one of the weekends during Summer Holidays. This has been successfully done since 2008 averaging 70 children participating in the VBS. The children comes from various denominations.
