Most Adult Sabbath Schools haven’t changed since 1869! In those days, pastors were not assigned to churches and Sabbath School was probably their only religious service on Sabbath. No wonder many today find Sabbath School "boring." In the 1990s, our General Conference revitalized Sabbath School by encouraging us to move from our 1869 model to where we design Sabbath School around four fundamentals. These four fundamentals are; (1) fellowship, (2) outreach, (3) learning, and (4) application. The Adult Sabbath School Department provides training in how to implement these four fundamentals in your Adult Sabbath School.
People who come to Adult Sabbath School have different needs and preferred ways of learning. This department trains Sabbath School superintendents and teachers in how to meet these felt needs and how to teach in ways to reach every learner. Not only does this department provide area-wide training events, but individual churches can request training for their church’s special needs.

In June/July, a reimbursement check will be mailed to participating churches. Deadlines: First Quarter - April 30, Second Quarter - July 31, Third Quarter - October 31, Fourth Quarter - January 31.
"Even though our churches are not yet meeting in person, let's think of creative and effective ways to collect and tally. This program is one way to save for Sabbath School projects," said Sabbath School department administrative assistant Yolanda Frazier.
