Sabbath School Seminar for All Sabbath School Teachers and Superintendents

on Saturday, 26 September 2020. Posted in Announcements

Dear Saints,

Praise the Lord! He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. I pray you and your families are doing well. I would like to meet with all teachers and local Sabbath School superintendents via Zoom on Saturday, October 3, 2020, at 7 pm EST.  This meeting will be an empowerment session, as I have had several requests to provide training to teachers to enhance Sabbath School. Please make arrangements to attend and pass this information on to as many teachers as possible. I look forward to seeing you there. If you have any questions, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Thank you and May the Lord bless thee and keep thee!

  • You can submit your church report using the new electronic form or use the existing Excel spreadsheet.
