Sabbath School in the HPAC

Although Sabbath School classes will not meet, each class will take turn leading out in the lesson discussion. Several microphones will be available for members' participation and interaction. However, the French, the Portuguese and the Yugoslavian classes will meet in the HPAC lobby. Sabbath School leaders will be in the HPAC lobby to respond to your questions or concerns.

"In Exile: Cadences of Home" Begins Next Sabbath

Because Pioneer is "in exile" from its familiar surroundings and spiritual home for the late spring and summer, our new worship/ pulpit theme in the Howard Performing Arts Center will focus on what are called "diasporic morality tales"—dramatic Bible narratives of believers who lived "in exile" among those who did not believe. From these stories both familiar and unfamiliar, what lessons can we draw from their faithful though often conflicted lives? While we're renovating God's House this summer, let's continue to renovate our hearts for Him. Beginning May 11.

Signs of the Times

The annual Signs of the Times campaign has begun and continues through the month of May. Signs of the Times was first published in June, 1874, and celebrates its 145th birthday this June. Signs of the Times is a monthly magazine that encourages readers to lead joyful Christian lives as they await the soon return of Jesus. For more information about Signs of the Times, visit www.signstimes.com.
