Sabbath(Saturday) School Ajax
Sabbath school classes are the heartbeat of our church community. Each week we spend time learning from Scripture and from each other.
Goals for Ajax Seventh-day-Adventist Church Community Sabbath School
FAITH- Bible Study and growing in your personal Christian experience.
HOW: Ajax Sabbath School have developed the Small Group Sabbath School Actions Units based on the concept of reducing class size and increasing membership participation and involvement in Sabbath School. We currently have 4 Adult Sabbath School Classes which includes the addition of a Collegiate Class for Young adults 18 to 25 yrs.
We have included a weekly segment in our Sabbath School program where members can testify on how they have witnessed to someone in the past week using what they learnt from the Sabbath School lesson or using their own personal experiences.
FELLOWSHIP- INREACH-Christian hospitality. Caring about Church Members .
HOW: Since the development of the Ajax church Monthly Potlucks have been part of our routine. Potlucks are held the last Sabbath of each month. This helps to bring our members and visitors together and ultimately brings the church closer together as one big family. Potlucks are organized by our Hospitality Committee.
~As part of the Small Group Action units, Ajax church has developed a Buddy System to encourage caring and closeness among our membership .
COMMUNITY-OUTREACH--working for the spiritual needs of the community. Promote soul winning.
HOW: ~ Ajax has led the way in reaching out to our community by inviting members/Agencies from the community to visit us even when there is no scheduled Community Guest Day. Members of the community are invited to our Sabbath School Program (based on their availability) to share information with us about their respective Agencies.
Ajax has a vibrant Greeting Ministry as it is important for us to make all members of the community and all visitors feel welcomed. We do so by pinning a special blue ribbon on our guest to let them know how happy we are that they took the time to visit with us. Our Visitors Registry allows us to maintain contact with our visitors and invite them to return again. We look forward to welcoming new visitors each week.
We are also now also reaching out to our community through our Church's Website. Feel free to log on and check for updated Sabbath School Information. .
WORLD MISSION -financially supporting missionaries all over the world.
HOW: Ajax Sabbath School uses the Conference Mission Spotlight DVD to promote missions and also encourages our members through weekly Mission Stories to give liberally to the work in other part of the world.
