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 Biblical Missionaries. God has called His church to reach out and spread the gospel to the whole world. We have been called to spread the truth about Jesus and what He has done for us, what He is doing for us now, and what He will do for us in the future. In the Great Commission, Jesus called His disciples to go and make other disciples for Him. This quarter we will look at mission as God's means of communicating the gospel to those who do not know it. In the process we will look at biblical missionaries in both the Old and New Testaments to see how God has used them to share His truth. As we study, let us pray that God will shape us to be effective missionaries for Him, in our homes, our neighborhoods, our places of employment, and beyond. Join us this quarter as we study the mission that God has entrusted to His church and how we can have a part in sharing the good news with others.
