Have you ever wished that you had a Junior/Earliteen Sabbath School in your church where the only complaint that you got from parents was, “What are you doing so early Sabbath morning that my kids want to be to Sabbath School at 8:30 AM?”
A Sabbath School where you see lives changed by the power and blessing of the Holy Spirit. The lives of leaders, teachers, and children all being changed as you discover together what God’s plan for your and their life is.
It is a well known fact that we retain 4-6% of what we hear, but 80-90% when we discover a truth for ourselves. This is the principle that the Discovery Sabbath School method uses. By the teacher allowing the Holy Spirit to influence what the students should know by the end of the class and the best way for them to discover those truths for themselves, you become an agent of the Holy Spirit to effectuate change.
It is truly exciting to see teachers who are willing to commit 3-4 hours a week to prepare their lesson. The teachers find that they grow spiritually like never before when they have the opportunity to lead children to Christ.
We would invite any person presently involved in Junior/Earliteen ministry or have children going into those departments someday to attend a weekend of training, problem solving, lesson preparation and networking with other Junior Earliteen leaders, and teachers.
This notes are from a weekends training session that was lead by Jerry & Chris Bartram. Jerry Bartram,CPA with offices in Yucaipa & Redlands, CA. Jerry & Chris led out in Junior, Earliteen, Youth and Adult Sabbath School rooms for a number of years. They, along with many wonderful and dedicated teachers, developed the Discovery Sabbath School. They have presented this training course for conferences, union and North American Division from Florida to California. Teachers from all walks of life have tried it and say it has changed their way of teaching for good.
Please check on the boxes on the left for outlines and presentation.
We hope you find the information helpful.
