Below is how the Builders 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 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. In covering these topics at this age group, this could potentially  double as preparation for baptism.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe.
He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
Thatwas the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
