Two major issues will help address the needs throughout the more than 20,000 churches and congregations in Inter-America, said Pastor Samuel Telemaque, Sabbath School director for the church in Inter-America.
...
"This is a challenge that still affects the church member who needs access to study and be prepared for the lesson study," said Telemaque.
...
"Over the years we have seen how a number of social factors, economic factors and world view factors affect our people in attending Sabbath School every week," said Telemaque. "Many because of economic pressures can only make it to worship services because they are tired from working several jobs during the week."
Sabbath School, as far as an internal structure goes, has become routine and less innovative for the members, explained Telemaque. The survey did not surprise leaders as indicators from past years showed less attendance and involvement of members in Sabbath School classes.
"We need to go back to why Sabbath School was instituted in our church, and that was with special emphasis on the study of the Word of God," said Telemaque.

"Spiritual transformation begins with the study of Scripture, so Sabbath school teachers at all levels must be equipped with new knowledge, skills, and attitude to facilitate the study and application of Biblical principles in the Sabbath School class," said Telemaque.
...
Pastor Telemaque has already scheduled regional trainings across 13 of Inter-America's unions where church administrators, pastors, and Sabbath School teachers will be trained and equipped to better lead, starting in January 2016.
Herbert Fletcher University-Inter-America's institution offering online education-will begin to provide Sabbath School certification program for teachers starting in September 2016, according to Telemaque. The goal is to have all of our 30,000 Sabbath School teachers fully trained to provide in-depth study of the Bible every week, he explained.
"Our main goal of the Sabbath School is to develop members capable of applying spiritual disciplines to resist temptation, to cope with crisis, to enjoy victorious living in Christ, to live in readiness for the coming of Jesus and to participate in God's mission in the world," Telemaque added.

Nearly half of church members do not receive study guides and only about half attend Sabbath School regularly, said Samuel Telemaque, Sabbath School director for the church in Inter-America, citing the survey.

"This is a challenge that still affects the church member who needs access to study and be prepared for the lesson study," Telemaque said.
Telemaque presented the results of the online survey of 1,653 church members in English, Spanish, and French at division year-end meetings held this month in Miami, Florida. The main purpose of the survey was to examine issues affecting the nurturing, programming, and equipping of Sabbath Schools in the division's more than 20,000 congregations.
Telemaque said a priority that emerged from the survey was to give church members more access to quarterly Sabbath School study guides.
...
Another issue that emerged from the survey is Sabbath school classes are not always led by trained teachers who facilitate learning and in-depth study of the Bible, Telemaque said.
When respondents were asked whether there was a "need for innovative Sabbath School program resources for Sabbath School directors in your local church," a firm "yes" was said by 80 percent of English speakers, 75 percent of Spanish speakers, and 83 percent of French speakers.
Other factors happening outside church, such as overworking, also affect attendance, Telemaque said.
"Over the years we have seen how a number of social factors, economic factors, and world view factors affect our people in attending Sabbath School every week," he said. "Because of economic pressures, many can only make it to divine worship services because they are tired from working several jobs during the week."
Another finding showed that church members felt that a low percentage of the division's 30,000 Sabbath School teachers were well prepared to teach the class every Sabbath. Only 37 percent of English and Spanish speakers and 41 percent of French speakers agreed that their teachers were prepared.
Fellowship is a big part of the Sabbath School class every week, but the main study of the Bible needs to be its top priority, Telemaque said. Keeping to that priority means church members who volunteer as Sabbath School teachers every Sabbath morning need to be properly trained to teach the class, he said.
"We need to go back to why Sabbath School was instituted in our church, and that was with special emphasis on the study of the Word of God," he said.

Telemaque will hold trainings in 13 of Inter-America's 24 unions to equip church administrators, pastors, and Sabbath School teachers from January 2016.
