Unity of Purpose and Mission
After many days of discussion, testimony from apostles and Gentiles, and guidance of the Holy Spirit, the early church found scriptural support for welcoming Gentiles into the Christian community. The church was strengthened and a major schism averted. Of course, this result required a level of trust from the church at Antioch when it sent representatives to Jerusalem to seek counsel with other apostles and elders. They trusted that together they would find the best solution to their conflict.
These stories in the book of Acts teach us that church unity is rooted in a mind-set of trust, confidence, and love for one another. The influence of the Holy Spirit brought humble acceptance of positions that appeared to contradict long-held interpretations of Scripture, producing a revoutionary solution and bringing greater unity in purpose and mission.

Sabbath School is the primary religious education system of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and has four purposes: study of the Scriptures, fellowship, community outreach, and world mission emphasis. Every week small groups get together to share what they learned from the lesson and how it has made a difference in their lives.
Our Sabbath School fellowship begins at 9:15 a.m. It is a time of praising God through music, prayers, inspirational thoughts, mission stories, and and small group Bible study. After the opening program, adults and youth separate into their respective classes. There are five adult classes, a young adult class (college/university), a youth class (age 14-18), an earliteen class (age 12-14), a junior class (age 10-12), and several children’s classes. Classes for children between the ages of 0-9 begin immediately at 9:15 a.m. in the lower hall of the church.
For our study and discussions, we use the Bible and the Sabbath School Quarterly. The quarterly is issued each quarter and it consists of 13 lessons. Each lesson divided into seven days and each day we study the designated topic. Each class has a teacher who leads the discussion on Sabbath based on the lesson study for that week.
Sabbath school classes are the heartbeat of our church community. It serves to bring people to Christ through Spirit-filled, Bible-centered programs by providing an atmosphere where persons with different capacities, skills, backgrounds, interests, knowledge and experience can gain insight into the Good News of salvation and grow spiritually.
You are invited to join us as each week at 9:15 a.m. as we spend time learning from the Scriptures and from each other.
What is Prayer?
