Most Adult Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍøs havenâ€™t changed since 1869! In those days, pastors were not assigned to churches and Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍø was probably their only religious service on Sabbath. No wonder many today find Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍø “boring.” In the 1990s, our General Conference revitalized Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍø by encouraging us to move from our 1869 model to where we design Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍø around four fundamentals. These four fundamentals are; (1) fellowship, (2) outreach, (3) learning, and (4) application. The Adult Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍø Department provides training in how to implement these four fundamentals in your Adult Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍø.
People who come to Adult Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍø have different needs and preferred ways of learning. This department trains Sabbath °ÄÃÅÁùºÏ²Ê¹ÙÍø 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 churchâ€™s special needs.
