This week teachers and education administrators gathered at the Columbia Union Conference headquarters in Columbia, Md., for training and planning. On Monday and Tuesday the Curriculum Committee members participated in training for the Encounter Bible Curriculum that will be implemented in all elementary and high schools across the union by the 2018/2019 school year.

We asked students at Spencerville Adventist Academy about their relationships with Jesus. We'll add more videos throughout the month.

The Glenville Present Truth church in Cleveland recently held a six-week evangelistic series themed “Our World in Crisis: Are You Ready?” Stephen D. Lewis, evangelist for Present Truth Ministry, presented Bible truth on topics such as the law of God, the Sabbath, the state of the dead and the plan of salvation. He also presented counsel for married couples and singles. Each evening he quizzed the attendees to see what they had learned from the previous night.
