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 The Book of Job. This book is believed by many to be the first book of the Bible to be written down by Moses. Job struggles to answer a question that has occupied many minds from his day down to our own: If God exists and is so good, so loving, and so powerful, why so much suffering? Job believed that his afflictions came directly from God. But the author of this book pulls back a veil to reveal a spiritual conflict behind the scenes battling for the hearts and minds of mankind. As the apostle Paul wrote: "We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." (Eph 6:12)
Join us this quarter as we explore the guidance God's word provides not only to understand the existence of evil in God's creation but how to live in such a world.
