Sabbath School on Zoom
This Sabbath between 9:30am and 11:15am, a Zoom meeting will open for Sabbath School; the attending classes will be held in respective breakout rooms. The link to the meeting will be distributed Friday along with more instructions.
  • Your sabbath school leader must send a list of attendees and opt in to hold class during this session; please contact your leader about this week's Sabbath School class.
If you are a Sabbath School leader and would like to join, please register your class by Friday at noon. For more information or to register your class, please contact Benjamin Ermshar at (512) 537-1844 during office hours.

Zoom Sabbath School Notice
When you join the sabbath school meeting on zoom via the link or with the meeting ID and password, you will first go into a waiting room at which point you will be assigned to a sabbath school classroom.
To help the meeting host assign you properly, please use your first and last name or activate your mic and tell the host which class you'd like to be assigned.
Unfortunately, some users enter the meeting with usernames like "Iphone" or "Samsung Galaxy S7" or even usernames they've created like "Blueman." Unfortunately, the host will not be able to assign such users to a classroom without identifying them. Please help the host by identifying yourself and the class to which you would like to be assigned. Thanks! :)

Young Professionals
If you are interested in joining the Young Professionals sabbath school on their independent online meets, please contact Christopher Walton at christopherwalton@southern.edu.

Weekly Service
