Education has played an important part of the Brethren. Reverend Chlumsky began the first Sunday School and Bible instruction in 1889 and helped to organize the first Sunday School Union. Carrying on the educational tradition he founded, the 17th Sunday School Convention was held in Granger from July 30 to August 2, 1928.
