Bible Studies Moved to Wednesdays | 3:30 – 4:30 P.M.

Bible studies with Pastor Luke have been moved to Wednesdays from 3:30 – 4:30 P.M.

This is not a baptismal class, meaning that students will not just be covering the Adventist fundamental beliefs, but will be diving into biblical themes, such as Following Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount, The book of Revelation and End Time prophecy, as well as everyday questions that your student may have about the Bible!

New Volunteer and Child Protection Screening Course/Procedures

At Carman Adventist School, we make the safety and protection of all of our students our number one priority. In partnership with the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists and Verified Volunteers, we are proud to launch a new web-based platform with increased training and screening for all of our employees and volunteers.

The completion of this new online training course (an approximate 1 hr duration) and background check are required in order for parents to volunteer as a classroom assistant or field trip driver/attendee.

Due to the in-depth screening process, volunteers and field trip attendees are required to complete the online training course 3-4 weeks prior to the date/trip they wish to volunteer. To complete the online training course and background check:

  1. Visit the Verified Volunteers website
  2. Select ‘First-Time Registrant’
  3. Under the ‘Select Your Union’ option, choose ‘Southern’
  4. Under the ‘Select Your Conference’ option, choose ‘Georgia-Cumberland Conference’
  5. Create a User ID and Password and provide all necessary contact information. Carman recommends that your User ID be the primary email address used for school correspondences
  6. Under the ‘Select Primary Location’ option, choose ‘Carman Adventist School’. Individuals that volunteer at multiple conference organizations will be prompted to enter all that apply
  7. Select all roles that you are interested in volunteering as (ex. Classroom Aide, Driver (Volunteer)
  8. Complete the online training module, ‘Child Protection Online Awareness Session’ (approximately 1 hour in duration)

We look forward to continuing to provide a safe and inclusive environment for all of our students!
