Adult Sabbath School
.



Sabbath school classes are the heartbeat of our church community. Each week we spend time learning from Scripture and from each other. The adult Sabbath School class is led by Dr. Ken McNulty using PowerPoint presentations to help students understand the information of the lesson and help focus discussion that will apply important biblical truths from the lesson to our lives.

Our Sabbath school fellowship begins at 10:45 a.m. Children's classes begin immediately while adult Sabbath school opens with a short program in the sanctuary which can consist of singing, inspirational thoughts, mission stories, and special features. After the opening program, the adult class is taught in the sanctuary beginning at about 11:00 am.

Current Adult Sabbath School Lesson:

The adult Sabbath School lessons are prepared by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, usually by one of the scholars or theologians of the church.  These lessons are published in the Adult Sabbath School Bible Study Guide which is published quarterly and provided free to each student.  To study on line, click the link in the previous sentence.


This quarter our Study Guide is entitled "Feed My Sheep," First and Second Peter.  Peter was among the inner circle of Jesus' disciples and the one who often spoke up for the others.  He was brash and bold, outspoken and courageous, but on the night that Jesus was betrayed, he denied His Lord three times as various people around the fire in the courtyard at the high priests house accused him of being a follower of Jesus.  Luke records how Jesus turned and looked at Peter from across the courtyard and how Peter went out and "wept bitterly."  That look must have conveyed the sorrow, the disappointment, and the pity in Jesus' heart.  But Jesus would not give up on His friend and follower.  Following His resurrection, Jesus had something very important to say to Peter around another fire that He had built on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.  Three times he asked Peter if he loved Him.  Three times Peter answered that he did.  And three times Jesus told Peter to "feed my sheep."  For each denial, Peter confessed his love of Jesus, and Jesus restored him to his position of ministry for his Lord.  

Peter did indeed feed the sheep of his Lord.  In fact, in the two epistles that he wrote that are now part of the New Testament, Peter is continuing to feed the Lord's sheep.  We are part of that great flock that looks to Jesus as our Savior, our Lord, and our Good Shepherd.  Join us this quarter as we explore these inspired letters to the flock and grow in grace on the food they supply.
