THE 4TH SABBATH IN OCTOBER IS CREATION SABBATH. JOIN IN THIS GLOBAL CELEBRATION. #CREATION SABBATH | 26 OCTOBER 2019
When was the last time your church took time to specifically recognise God’s power and grace as Creator and Redeemer?
Creation Sabbath is a special Sabbath set aside to refocus our attention on the central theme of the Bible; our Creator loves us, has earned salvation for us and offers us abundant life (John 10:10). This is why Creation Sabbath is a special time of celebration, a chance to rejoice at what God has done, to praise Him for the rich gifts He has provided and rest with Him as we enjoy the creation He made to sustain our lives and bring joy to those who know Him. We are invited to be like the sons of God who shouted for joy as the creation week unfolded (Job 38:7). By designating the fourth Sabbath in October every year as Creation Sabbath, the Seventh-day Adventist Church is “acknowledging God as our Creator and the implications that this biblical teaching has for us . . . . to create a worldwide sense of unity in promoting this belief in a positive light.”
Everyone is invited to join Seventh-day Adventist churches worldwide in celebrating Creation Sabbath. You don’t have to be a Seventh-day Adventist to celebrate, God created us all. And if the fourth Sabbath in October does not work for you, choose a date that will work for your church or group.
An opportunity for creatives to be able to share your own stories of how you have experienced God’s creative power in nature. Your own creative work will be available to all churches and schools throughout the South Pacific. Details at http://bit.ly/2NmIoPk.
