Living Generously, Sharing Faithfully




Below is how the Helping Hands curriculum can been adapted to the Sabbath School setting. The curriculum on its own does not include a Bible story in most meeting lessons. Below, Bible story suggestions along with Bible concepts are listed to accompany each lesson. Two things to note:

  1. The meeting lessons are not in order. This is to accommodate for a better flow in telling the Bible Story / Bible concept each Sabbath.
  2. The Bible concept is not only for the children. Remember this is family sabbath school, with parent who also need to be engage. Take time to think about how you would share this concept to help grow those parents, and ultimately those families.


The twenty-two lessons in this series cover the Biblical 28 fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and coincide with the book What We Believe - for Kids by Jerry D. Thomas. This book is designed to help children understand the Biblical and distinct beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and includes teaching tips for how to explain each concept. Get this book here.

The concepts are a repeat of the Builders curriculum couched in mostly different themes. The goal is to go over these beliefs multiple times as repetition increases impression. In covering these topics at this age group, this could potentially  double as preparation for baptism.
