You can watch the current lesson of Pastor Derek Morris’s Sabbath School Class on the HopeTV. It is an hour-long “an in-depth, inter-active study of the Word of God.” If you don’t have satellite TV, you can download the video (MP4) or audio (MP4) files and the lesson outlines (PDF) to your computer from the site.
