Youth Sabbath School
Youth SS runs every Saturday morning from 9:30am. It consists of praise & worship, interactive games, and Bible study. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and open discussion is encouraged. We separate into two smaller groups of a sabbath to study the weekly lesson. The lessons we study are the Adult (for more of an indepth study) and cornerstone for a less indepth study.
