Spotlighting The Adult Sabbath School Class

Sabbath School Class

Sabbath School

Adult Sabbath School has increased since returning to in-person classes. Each week, we have different teachers to present an overview of the weekly lesson. The audience is able to discuss and ask questions if any arise.

Our members really enjoy the open dialogue that they’re able to have with one another. It gives them a chance to share their perspectives of what they gained from each lesson. The flexibility of Sabbath School allows those who are unable to attend in-person a chance to participate online. They are able to attend via YouTube Live Stream or Zoom.

Our new members enjoy learning the dynamics and the different lessons that are taught in Sabbath School. They are able to easily follow along with the lesson and if they have any questions or want to give feedback on what they took from the lesson, they are welcomed to do so.

Sabbath school consists of the Adult class, the Young Adult class, the Teen and Youth class, the Junior class, the Primary class, and the Kindergarten class. Oh! And, let’s not forget about Sabbath School Overtime!

Sabbath School Overtime is for those who may have missed the in-person/virtual Sabbath School and for those who just can’t get enough of Sabbath School all together. Sabbath School Overtime is a little more laidback and has deeper dialogue than regular Sabbath School. The teachers are diving deeper into the history of the lessons and presenting research that they’ve found. Very interesting and informative class to attend online.

We hope that you’re enjoying Sabbath School each Sabbath. And if you’re not attending Sabbath, what are you waiting for? Come join us every Sabbath. Choose the class that describes you the most and enjoy the deeper learning of the Word.

Why I Love Sabbath School

Why I Love Sabbath School

Sabbath School Lesson Study in the church is very important.. As we study the Sabbath School

lesson weekly, it actually builds relationships with other members as well as our relationship

with God. I personally enjoy Sabbath School, because it has given me such a spiritual growth.

I love the interaction and comments from class members and the microphone set up really

makes it easier and more comfortable for others to open up and discuss the lesson freely. The

attendance has really improved and I look forward to continuing the study of these interesting

and exciting lessons during this series of “Managing for the Master” . Also, I can appreciate

the on-line Sabbath School interaction, because it allows class members who are unable to

attend an option to join in the sabbath school lesson study. My prayer is that we follow what the

Word is teaching us this quarter and truly apply it to our lives.
