Over 2 000 Christians from Luchenza, Mulanje and Phalombe Zone of the Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) Church in southern Malawi, last Saturday converged at Luchenza Civic Centre where Dorcas Women held their Sabbath School.
Zone president, Jane Jesman, said Sabbath School is one of the occasions observed by both the clergy and laity when the faithful reconcile with their creator and re-devote themselves to His call through sharing of primary religious education.
The day seeks to achieve four purposes: study of the scripture, fellowship, community outreach and world mission emphasis.
â€œThis is the lifeline of the SDA Church. The purpose of the Sabbath School is to make disciples for Christ. It includes nurturing of spiritual growth in members and prospective members, as well as new believers who come to join in the fellowship, study, devotion, sharing and service,â€ said Jesman.
She added: â€œAbove all, Sabbath School offers our Christians an opportunity to reconcile with the Lord having realised and accepted to take responsibility for our shortfalls. This helps the faithful to deepen their faith in God.â€
