Beginner Sabbath School
The Beginner Sabbath School provides a fun, activity-based environment for learning about Jesus and His love. Babies and toddlers, Birth to 2, are welcome to join us for an hour of happy songs and hands-on learning.
We begin at 10:15 a.m. and when the program concludes, there is time for the parents to visit with each other while the children enjoy the company of other children and play with the toys. Come join us!

Pre-Kindergarten Sabbath School
The Pre-Kindergarten Sabbath School department at Mcdonald Road is for children between the ages of 2 and 3. Your children are welcome to come and join in singing and praising God and learning more about Jesus.
Our teachers work very hard to provide a program that encourages participation and teaches of God’s love and care for His children. Each Sabbath a different Bible Story is taught and memory verse learned.
Each week we repeat this following Sabbath School Finger Play:
This little boy (girl) is going to bed. (Thumb upright)
Down on his pillow he lays his head (Thumb lays in center of other
hand palm with other thumb as pillow)
Wraps himself in his covers so tight. (Wrap Thumb with fingers of other hand)
That’s how he sleeps, all the long night. (Rock wrapped Thumb)
Morning comes, the sun is high.
Back with a flash the covers fly. (Open fingers)
Up he jumps, is dressed, and away. (Thumb upright, wiggle thumb,
put thumb behind back)
Ready for Sabbath School today.
Kindergarten Sabbath School
The Kindergarten Sabbath School includes children 4 and 5 years of age. We begin at 10:10 with one-on-one memory verse interaction followed by welcome songs, personal prayer by those children who wish to do so, and a program designed to teach about Jesus, His love for us, and His wonderful gifts to us. The children have an active part in the fun activities and action songs that make up these programs. We do a different program every quarter. These programs include a variety of topics such as Heaven, Noah, Moses, David & Goliath, Daniel, Boy Jesus/Sabbath, winter/angels, camping/animals, beach/seashells, and jungle/missions.
From 11-11:20, small groups are formed where the children are taught a weekly Bible lesson and memory verse. They also put together a craft to take home along with their weekly Sabbath School paper.
We are dedicated to helping every child come to know Jesus better and to want Him as their personal Friend and Savior.

Primary 1 Sabbath School
We start at 10:10 a.m. every Sabbath (Saturday); our leaders are there at 10:00 to welcome you. After song service we spend 25 minutes on our Theme, this Quarter it is called The Journey. All our Theme material is 100% Bible based. We are traveling the Journey of the Children of Israel. We are teaching the children how God was with them all the time. We promote Bible use and a Bible is given to any child at the end of the quarter if they do not own one. The children learn to use their Bible every Sabbath. After the Theme the children separate into small classes and study their lesson. Because we believe and promote daily lesson study, all lessons are given out the week before so to encourage daily lesson study. A Primary Treasure is given to all children when they leave.
Please come and join us any Sabbath. Watch how Jesus is touching the life of each child. I hope to see you next Sabbath.

Primary 2 Sabbath School
This quarter we are discovering the wonders of Creation Week.
We will explore the development of the creatures of the deep, and go with Adam as he playfully called the animals by name.
Did you know that Adam didn’t receive a mate until he saw the need??
Come rest with us, if you are in the area, as we learn about the beautiful rest in the first Sabbath with our first parents.
Our Primary boys and girls are 8 and 9 years old and enjoyable to associate with. Come join us about 10:00 AM each Sabbath.

Our Primary 2 Division Leader
Picture yourself calmly walking up to the one next to you and pouring a bucket of water on
top of their head. They gasp, turn toward you armed with a bucket of water of their own
and the chase is on, ending only when you have been thoroughly drenched. Picture this
going on for hours. Then picture a fire truck pulling up and dropping 750 gallons of
water on you and all your friends. It drives away only to return and do it again.
If you picture yourself totally and completely wet along with everyone else then you’ve
got a pretty good idea of what took place at the junior division water party Sunday, June
29, 2008. Now throw in a dunk tank, car wash and lots and lots of food and your memory
would be complete.
Now ask yourself: “What spiritual application can I get from a water party?” The answer
comes in two sections. First the kids in the junior division earned their water party.
Each week every junior could earn up to four pieces belonging to a beautiful 1000 piece
puzzle. One piece for knowing their memory verse, one for bringing their bible, one for
bringing their lesson quarterly and one for having read it during the week. When the
puzzle was completely put together they were promised a water party. Scripture is clear
there are rewards for hard work, and working together toward a goal. Daily study habits
are learned from the readings each day.
The second spiritual application comes from being totally wet only to get wet again and
again. Even being creative in how I got wet. I poured water over my own head, I let others
splash we with water, I dropped into a tank full of water, and stood in the stream of a
high pressure high volume fire hose. This reminds me of how much of Jesus I want. I want
to be totally saturated with Him then I want another dose.
