Gerry Lewin Has the Sabbath School Program

Sabbath services on September 24, 2016 began with a song service led by Pedro Arce, accompanied by Samantha (9th grader) on the piano and a group of students playing various instruments. Gerry Lewin welcomed everyone.  The opening song was “Standing on the Promises”.

George (sophomore) had prayer and read Philippines 2:14-15 “14 ¶ Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.” Jester Felenca then sang a song of his own composing.

Gerry Lewin then read a mission story from South Sudan about a global mission pioneer in the Upper Nile field. When fighting broke out, all but ten church members fled, but later many returned.  An evil spirit possessed a neighborhood woman.  The pioneer prayed for the woman despite the demon’s efforts to discourage prayer.  The pioneer has been studying with the woman who is now recovered from her demon possession. The 13th Sabbath offering goes in part to help construct a lamb shelter for the children in the pioneer’s town. Another part of the offering goes towards assisting the Adventist medical school in Rwanda construct new dormitories and a cafeteria.

Gerry Lewin then called for the Laurelbrook Missions Offering, which was collected by Elyjah (sophomore) and Ben (
9th grader) and which goes to support Laurelbrook mission trips. Gerry Lewin then prayed for the offering and for the Sabbath School lesson to follow. 

The congregation then became two Sabbath School classes, one taught by Jester Felarca in the church sanctuary and one taught by Rich Sutton in the back of the sanctuary “behind the glass”.
