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 Jeremiah. If ever one book of the Old Testament revealed the reality of God's desire for humans to obey Him, and the human tendency not to, it would be the book of Jeremiah. This book recounts the ministry and message of the prophet as he, with passion and faithfulness, preached God's message to a people who, for the most part, didn't want to hear it. Starting with the prophet's call, this book takes us through decades of biblical history as the Lord used this man to proclaim the basic truths that have been the foundation of the biblical message from the beginning. God's desire for His people is well expressed in Jer 9:23-24: "Thus says the Lord: Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord."
Join us this quarter as we explore this prophetic book to find God's call to us to be obedient and faithful.
