Welcome to Sabbath School, the heart of the church!

Sabbath School is the heart of the church! It is a common thread that helps bind together Seventh-day Adventists from every part of the world. The Sabbath School Alive! initiative highlights three vital components of thriving Sabbath Schools:

  • BIBLE STUDY & PRAYER—discover the power of Bible study and prayer in Sabbath School
  • FELLOWSHIP—experience the joy of fellowship through study and service in Sabbath School
  • MISSION—gain world mission education and community outreach training in Sabbath School

The power of Sabbath School is that it follows the divine model for true discipleship—Bible study and prayer, fellowship, and mission. Sabbath School Alive! is a worldwide initiative of the General Conference Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department helping local churches to rediscover the power and purpose of Sabbath School. On this website you will find a growing number of helpful plans, resources, tools, and tips to revitalize Sabbath School in your local church.

“From children we as Seventh-day Adventists have been told that the Sabbath School is the heart of the church, and so it is” (Robert H. Pierson, former General Conference President, The British West Indies Visitor, June, 1948).
