What is "Sunday School in a Box" ?

Voice of the Martyrs Korea has begun a campaign to open 5,000 Sunday Schools in China in the next twelve months, in partnership with its sister NGO China Aid.

The campaign, called “Sunday School in a Box”, assembles the leading legal children’s Bible in China, a compact video player, and a comprehensive curriculum of digital resources for parents and children. Each “Sunday School in a box” is designed to reach an average of seven children and will be distributed through the ministries’ joint underground house church network. The materials are specially designed to allow parents of all educational levels to teach the full scope of the Christian faith to their own children and relatives.

Situation in China - September 2019

The CCP in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region’s Zhongning County issued a “red-headed document” (high importance) titled Plan for Implementing Regulations about Religious Activity Sites Zhongning County, prescribing that “minors under 18 years of age are forbidden from temples” (stipulation 4) and “elementary school students are banned from entering into temples during summer and winter breaks” (stipulation 5).

“The number one challenge facing the church in China is not cross demolition or church raids,” says Voice of the Martyrs Korea representative Hyun Sook Foley.

“It is the full-scale effort on the part of the Chinese Communist Party to prevent the children of Christians from becoming believers themselves Voice of the Martyrs Korea and China Aid have now compiled credible reports from every province in China of churches facing harsh penalties if they permit children to attend. But the problem is actually twofold. The children of Chinese Christians are not only being shut out of churches. They are also being taught a comprehensive curriculum in schools that defines Christianity as an evil religion. They are warned to be suspicious of their Christian parents and encouraged them to report any relatives who are practicing Christians. For the first time in Chinese history, we have reached a point where it is nearly a criminal offense for Christian parents to raise their children as Christians.”

In February, a church in Yicheng District, Zhumadian, Henan, displayed a notice “Banning children from entering church.”

The cost for one Sunday School in a Box is $75.00 (75,000 KRW). Voice of the Martyrs Korea is challenging Korean churches and Christians to sponsor one or more boxes.

One of the reasons for the cost of each box is that we are using only materials that are legally available to the Chinese general public through Chinese retail stores. There is no underground printing operation involved. Though it make the cost a little higher this way, it also makes the Sunday School in a Box more difficult for Chinese authorities to oppose on legal grounds. Each Sunday School in a Box will reach an average of seven children, even a gift of $10.00 (10,000 KRW) toward the campaign can reach one child.”
