Hand Of Grace 

Ecclesiastes

If the deep and perplexing issues of life intrigue you, take a look at Ecclesiastes, but be prepared for a few surprises. On the surface, the book seems to challenge essential biblical truths.  It faces hard questions.  It shows the unglamorized life of a sinful world and a glimpse of a secular mind.  It looks at suffering and struggles to find meaning in it all.  It offers a philosophy of life and shows how a life not centered on God is purposeless and meaningless.  The book shows how to find spiritual significance in a life that would otherwise be meaningless.  In the end, Ecclesiastes offers the conclusion of the matter.

Pursuing Spiritual Transformation

Our Sabbath School class is focused on building fellowship with anyone seeking to transformed, by being open, authentic, supportive and vulnerable to the leading of the Holy Spirit and with each other. We use  the Ten Core Values for Spiritual Formation  from  “Fully Devoted” by Ortberg, Pederson and Poling as a framework of  our growth together.  We are together asking the Lord to develop in us discipleship that is biblical, effective, transformational, relational, intentional, and missional.

Ten Core Values for Spiritual Formation are:

… is essential, not optional, for Christ-followers.
… is a process, not an event.
… is God’s work, but requires my participation.
… involves those practices, experiences, and relationships that help me live intimately with Christ and walk as if He were in my place.
… is not a compartmentalized pursuit. God is not interested in my spiritual life; he’s interested in my life - all of it.
… can happen in every moment. It is not restricted to certain times or practices.
… is not individualistic, but takes place in community and finds expression in serving others.
… is not impeded by a person’s background, temperament, life situation, or season of life. It is available right now to all who desire it.
… and the means of pursuing it, will vary from one individual to another. Fully devoted followers are handcrafted, not mass produced.
… is ultimately gauged by an increased capacity to love God and people. Superficial or external checklists cannot measure it.

Adult Sabbath School Quarterly

The Mission of the Adult Sabbath School Class is to build faith in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit through the study of the Scriptures and the doctrines and teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  This Class uses the Adult Sabbath School Bible Study Guide prepared and issued quarterly by the Office of the Adult Bible Study Guide of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.  The four different subjects studied throughout a year will include one or more books of the Bible and one or more beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  The main objectives of the Class are to prepare members, through in depth Bible study, for spiritual and material support of others, for on-going community outreach, and for Church sponsored evangelism efforts.
