The heart of our mission is to help others realize the hope found in experiencing a personal relationship with a living God and loving Saviour, and nurturing them in preparation for His soon return. Here is a list of links to various types and styles of Bible study – in the form of online Bible studies, a newsletter, online videos, and printed Bible study lessons or Bible study CD ROMs available by postal mail. May God bless you as you seek His Word.

Sabbath School Lesson Studies – Every week a different Bible lesson is discussed during Seventh-day Adventist Church study hours, usually at 9:30 a.m. apart from the worship hour which usually begins around 11 a.m. (check local church times). Visitors are always welcome and participation is voluntary. The congregation usually breaks up into smaller groups in different rooms or areas of the sanctuary to talk about the lesson for that week, but some have a "general" lesson study led by someone from the pulpit, and discussion may depend upon the size of the audience. The lesson themes change four times during a year (one quarter of the year divided into 13 weeks each). This is true for each age group of youth and children as well. You can find lesson studies for each group at the following Web sites: www.SabbathSchoolU.org (predominately for young adults) and at www.SSnet.org (includes all levels). There are audio discussions online, teacher's helps, outlines developed by some teachers, as well as the children's and youth's division studies at these sites. You can watch recordings of discussions online at http://hopess.hopetv.org/.
