Calendar of Events



  1.  The Gaffney SDA Church opened on a limited basis on Saturday, May 23.  In accordance with local and national directives for infection control of the coronavirus pandemic, the "social distancing" provisions will limit attendance to about 20 persons until further notice (first come...first seated). 

2.  There will be a special re-opening of our God's Clothing and Food Bank on Tuesday, October 13, 5:30 to 7:30 PM, outside (weather permitting) in front of the church.  Masks required to participate.  There will be no cost for the number of bags you will need for your selections.


For the 3rd quarter of 2020, the theme of the Sabbath School lessons is on Making Friends for God - the Joy of Sharing In His Mission.  The lessons were authored by an internationally-known evangelist - Mark Finley.  Several years ago he was profoundly influenced by what a friend said;  "Mission is primarily the work of God.  He is employing all of the resources of heaven to save  the people of our planet.  Our work is to joyfully cooperate with Him in what He is already doing."  And Augustine once said, "Lord, we were made for thee, and our hearts will never find rest until they find rest in thee."

These lessons are an examination of what the Bible teaches about this mission of God and our role in it.  You are invited to keep an open mind, a willing heart, and a humble spirit in your quest for a meaningful and eternally-important relationship with the God who gave so much for each one of us.  Expect to be challenged, challenge your expectations, and then make necessary adjustments to believe God's Word and do something constructive with it in cooperation with the Holy Spirit!

  1. Why are there so many different Christian churches?
  2. And why do you go to the one you usually attend?
  3. Does it matter if your church teaches things that are not biblical?
  4. With so much "fake news" in the world today, how can we know what God wants us to know?
  5. What knowledge and actions are essential for salvation about which most people can agree?
  6. What is the likelihood of still being friends and having unity when there is disagreement about things not essential to salvation that violate long-standing beliefs?                                                                                                                                 If any of these questions stimulate your thinking, and you care to share your answers, please send an email to
