With almost 1,800 members (as of July 2012), the SSnet email discussion list is likely this planet’s most diverse Sabbath School class outside of the Sabbath School Net blog.
Purpose of the SSNET email list
Our overall purpose is to encourage each other in the study of God’s Word and the spreading of the Good News of the gospel and the Three Angels’ messages as we look forward to the return of our magnificent and soon-coming Savior.
Our discussion list fills a special niche in that it allows isolated members to be in touch with the larger community of Seventh-day Adventist Bible students. Participants write from many countries around the world. We encourage the following through our email discussion list:
- Active discussion of the Sabbath School lesson and theme
- General discussion of the quarterly theme
- Sharing of teaching notes and ideas among Sabbath School teachers
- Discussion of biblical doctrines related to the Sabbath School lessons
If you are not familiar with moderated email discussion lists, please review how our list works (below).
The discussion on the list differs from the discussion on the blog in that topics tend to continue longer than on the blog, and members may initiate their own topics of discussion, as long as they are related to Sabbath School.
Anyone is welcome to join the SSNET list. We have members from more than 36 countries around the world and from many faiths. However, the members who post at any one time seem to be not that many more than you will find in any good-sized Sabbath School class. If you join us, we encourage you to post your thoughts.

SSNET is a moderated email discussion list. This means that all notes submitted to the list are reviewed by a moderator before they are distributed to all members of the list. We reserve the right to edit subject lines to conform with our policies. Moderators aim to keep this list courteous while still being a place where issues can be examined and even called into question, but with grace and without impugning motives. Please be sure to read our Guiding Principles and Posting Rules below.
We hope that this forum will provide an environment in which you may find fellowship and be encouraged to grow in the love and service of God.

How the List Works

Before subscribing, please be sure you know how to filter email messages/apply “rules” to your email messages, so they do not clutter your inbox. (Volume per day ranges from 12 or so to over 30.)
