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). How we can reopen our clothing and food bank effectively is still being studied. Please watch this web site for updates, and join us in prayer for each other and for our country.
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!
