Ministries

At Athens SDA we hope to provide a home for all who come. We understand that each path is different and that all stories have value as a ministry for God. Because of this we seek to find ways to reach each person that comes through out doors. Whether you are a college student, young family, retiree, or anybody else it is our hope to provide a ministry to serve your needs.

Sabbath School: Our Sabbath School classes range from infants to adult. Classes start at 10:00 a.m. but you are welcome to come at 9:45 a.m. to meet and enjoy fellowship with fellow believers. Classes offered:

 

The following classes take place on Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m. and can be found in the duplex to the left of the parking lot:

 

Cradleroll/Beginners:

Parents and their children (aged birth to 4) gather here each Sabbath for a fun hands-on class where they form the foundations of their walk with Jesus. Enjoy songs, crafts, and snacks with this awesome class

 

Kindergarden/Primary: 

School aged children will enjoy the opportunity to meet, do crafts, sing songs, and learn Bible lessons. The focus here is on Jesus and His love for us and how it can work in our lives. 

 

Teens:

High School aged students will enjoy this interactive class where they begin to get their feet wet in ministry. Discussions about beliefs, how to walk daily with Jesus, and fun and interactive activities are some of the things you will find here. 

 

Collegiate/Young Adult: This is a place where people 18-35 can meet, fellowship, and grow in their daily walk. Whether you're a student at UGA, UNG, Piedmont, or Athens Tech you can find a home here. Young professionals and others are encouraged to come and plug in also!

 

The following classes meet in the church:

 

Adult: This is your traditional class found in most sanctuaries. We study the Adult Sabbath School Quarterly, if you don't have a copy feel free to download one (free!) on any smartphone from the App store. If you prefer a paper copy we typically have a few available, ask the greeter or a deacon and they'll be happy to help. 

 

Adult Small Group: Prefer a smaller, more intimate setting? This group also studies the Adult Sabbath School Quarterly with a focus on individual growth and making connections. We usually meet down the hallway from the sanctuary in the overflow room.

 

????: These Sabbath School classes are just the beginning. If you have an idea or suggestion feel free to talk with the Pastor or an Elder about it, we're always looking for more ways to serve others.
