Sabbath School

The Sabbath school, the primary religious education program of the Church, has four purposes: study of the Scripture, fellowship, community outreach, and world mission emphasis. The General Conference Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department distributes the Sabbath school Bible study guide for all age levels, provides designs for Sabbath school pro- gramming within the context of the various world division cultures, provides resources and training systems for Sabbath school teachers, and promotes world mission Sabbath school offerings. (Source: SDA Church Manual 2010)

 “The Sabbath school is an important branch of the missionary work, not only because it gives to young and old a knowledge of God’s Word, but be- cause it awakens in them a love for its sacred truths, and a desire to study them for themselves; above all, it teaches them to regulate their lives by its holy teachings.”—CSW 10, 11.
