CWC Sabbath School Ministry
Sis. Prethadawn Jack, Superintendent
The Sabbath School Department personnel are motivated to facilitate spirit filled worship
experiences for every member weekly. For this purpose the department has developed the following
vision and mission statement that will serve as the framework for its activities.
To motivate every member and visitor to grow spiritually through daily study of the word of God.
To encourage every individual to have a closer relationship with God and mature spiritually by making
daily study of the Bible a life priority, also by sharing the word of God with others, and by participating in
The Sabbath School is the first official service of the Sabbath celebration. As such, it is very
important that it provides for each worshipper a soul stimulating experience. Unfortunately, in recent
years the importance of the Sabbath School celebration has been dimmed and many worshippers make
it optional. For the spiritual maintenance, growth and development of each Christian corporate study of
the word of God is important. As Christians we are admonished in Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the
assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much
the more, as ye see the day approaching.” The Sabbath School provides the setting and opportunity for
this activity weekly, in addition to presenting a mission emphasis and information for meditation. The
question now is, why are so many of the brethren absent from Sabbath School every week? A possible
answer is that we have not have not recognized that the day is fast approaching.
The Sabbath was blessed and designated by God as a special time for worship. All who believe
this should embrace and participate in corporate worship starting at Sabbath School. Prophecy has
told us that in the time of trouble we would not be able to meet for corporate worship so let us avail
ourselves of the opportunity now. The Sabbath School Department is encouraging every member to
come to Sabbath School weekly and on time; also to bring someone. After worshipping and learning
all members should be excited to share with others the good news of the gospel of Jesus. Ellen White
admonishes us that “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 because 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” (Testimonies for the Church, 5:39).
