The lessons for the 2nd Quarter of 2022 are about the book of Genesis.
Watch your email and above for when class will meet.
We are approaching the subject from the perspective presented in the following:
I have ordered a copy of each of the 3 books they recommend. I will try to share them with the class.

These are from the Roy Branson Legacy Sabbath School Class in Loma Linda about 4 years ago.
Leader: Discussions in the "Contemporary Sabbath School Class" are led by John Anholm. When he is not available there typically is no class. So check here to see if class will be held each Sabbath.
We discuss questions and issues for which we may have opinions and ideas but often do not have answers. Don't expect the leader to have "the answers". In fact, you should not expect to agree with the leader 100% of the time because he is not always right. Each one of us comes from different backgrounds and life experiences. So our views on things will be different. We want to share those views and learn from each other.
We try to read the Biblical material aloud in class. We also often read other materials relevant to the subjects being discussed. College level learning is the goal rather than indoctrination.
Typically we use a topic from the Sabbath School Lesson Quarterly as the jumping off point for our discussions. But rarely will we go through it page by page.
In preparation for the class the leader generally consults some of the following sources for ideas and materials:
