Special Emphasis Days and Events

They may live and worship in far-flung places, but the 18 million Seventh-day Adventists worldwide are not only a faith community—they're a family.

But finding a sense of togetherness can be difficult. One way Adventists can promote community across time zones is by celebrating special emphasis days and events together. The Adventist Church's calendar of Special Emphasis Days and Events not only encourages unity, it also helps raise awareness of key issues, such as abuse prevention, family and religious freedom.

Adventist Church leadership invites you and your church to join your global family in celebrating these emphasis days and events. For details and to download resources, click on a calendar item.
