Lying at the heart of the Sabbath experience, the weekly study experience and the mission experience is the study and time period known as Sabbath School. It was never supposed to be just a 1 hour slot in the church calendar that served a time filler before the main service but when done correctly it is the lifeblood of the church. Pastor Justin Kim takes us through the history of this institution, how it might have changed and what we need to do to get it back where it needs to be.
