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 Major Lessons from Minor Phrophets. It is hard to remember the names of many of these prophets let alone find their books in the Bible. But they are included in holy scripture for a reason. They have an important message for the people to whom they wrote as well as an important message for us today. The message is about God's grace toward undeserving sinners. The message is that God wants to save us from our sins, to save us from the devastation that sin, rebellion, and disobedience bring. Again and again in these books we see the Lord pleading with His people to repent, to put away their sins, to return unto Him, and to find life not death, salvation not damnation, hope not despair. There is nothing minor about that theme. It is God's message for us today just as it was for those who lived in the time of these twelve minor prophets. Come study with us this quarter as we seek to hear and obey their message.

(Note on posting: In times past, I have posted the lessons about a week in advance because our SS class studied the lessons a week in advance. Our class has gone back to studying the lessons on the week they are to be studied in the quarterly. I have been trying to get the lessons posted early, but it is difficult to do so without a drop-dead deadline like I used to have. I will do my best to get them posted by Thursday night, Eastern time.)
