South Georgia Advocate to continue using Standard Lesson Quarterly/Uniform Series for winter, future Sunday school lessons


For years, the South Georgia Advocate has provided weekly Sunday school lessons as a resource to churches and Sunday school teachers. We are profoundly grateful for the gifted and Spirit-led writers – all South Georgia Conference laity and clergy – who have given of their time and talents to provide this much loved and well-used resource.

This fall, Cokesbury departed from the Scope and Sequence of the Uniform Series for their Adult Bible Studies (the quarterly curriculum published by United Methodist Publishing House). We were unaware of this change and continued to follow the Standard Lesson Quarterly, based on the International Sunday School Lessons (ISSL)/Uniform Series

After conversations with many throughout our conference and reading the responses of our survey, we have decided to continue using the Standard Lesson Quarterly/Uniform Series for the 2019/2020 winter quarter and the future. It is our understanding, based on our conversations and the survey results, that this is the desire of many in our conference. 

Thank you for being a faithful Advocate reader and for how you faithfully live out your calling as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
