In the 1950’s, Hollywood Presbyterian Church boasted a Sunday School of over 6000 people. Each Sunday, there were more people attending the Sunday School than the worship services. According to Dr. Henrietta Mears, Hollywood Presbyterian Church Christian Education Director, nearly 60% of the people attending the Sunday school were unchurched. Mears believed that the Sunday school was the most vital way for a church to reach unchurched people and influence the community. Below is a recording of portions of an interview with Henrietta Mears from November of 1962. She talks about how the Bible has the answer to the world’s problems, the importance of presenting Jesus to every boy and girl, man and woman. She also talks about the role of the Sunday school in the church.
