For the Sabbath School: We have two goals - One is to nurture friendships with other class members through relevant discussion and information that will focus on God's goodness. Another is to discover what Christ's will is for our lives, develop our faith in Him and then live accordingly. The mission of the Sabbath School collectively, is to make heaven our home, ('our', meaning families, friends and neighbors)
Jesus encourages us to have an intimate and personal relationship with HIM. He wants what's best for us and promises to be with us when and wherever; and then HE promises to NEVER leave us alone.
We believe studying and understanding God's Word helps us in wanting to get to know Jesus even more. Studying His life, His relationships with God the Father, His friends and disciples helps us to see that He is a very personal, compassionate and caring friend.
"Here, in the Sabbath School department we have discovered that the more time we take to study God's Word, the Bible, the more we understand our purpose and God's will for our lives, we've discovered the true meaning of happiness, peace and love. Our lives have become richer, more complete and fulfilling. The ordinary and mundane things of life will pale in comparison to the inner peace and joy we will know.

The Sabbath School is built on small groups sitting together, discussing the lessons studied during the week. This scenario affords the students opportunity to exchange ideas, share insights, ask questions and ultimately make that needed connection to the Almighty, recommitted and reconsecrated for the tasks ahead. This interaction is one of the fundamentals of the Sabbath School, and certainly a highlight of the Sabbath hours..
The Sabbath School provides for children as well as adults. The lessons and Sabbath School programming are prepared for each age group - infants, adolescents, youth and adults (and even more specific catergories, i.e. college-aged, earliteens, etc)
Below are two of the periodicals for the Youth/Earliteen and Junior-aged students of the Sabbath School:
